Here is Lucia dancing in the May Pole dance for the first time:
And here we are with our flower finery:
I was happy to hear the Padstow song featured in the opening ceremony, with some alternative lyrics about the Queen of May. After all the grades performed their dances, the stations for the bake sale, salmon grilled lunch, "fishing pond" and cake-walk were set up. I had signed up to play for a half-hour during the cake-walk, but was relieved after 20 minutes by one of the graders with her recorder. Afterward, the experienced musicians played as a guitar/saxophone trio.
We were all rather soggy today. Earlier, I asked, "What is the plan if we get rained upon during May Faire?" The answer was, "It's never rained on May Faire!"
