MUSIC, KID’S GAMES, GREAT FOOD, LOCAL WINES & FAMILY FUN
LEGEND has it, the first May Day Festival was back in 1925. It began as a day to come together as a community and celebrate the wonders of Spring. Teachers and Students from all the surrounding schoolhouses were represented. Children would dress up as fairy tale characters and go on pony rides and cake walks. The Firefighters would have water fights and raise money for new equipment. Sometimes you might find a Quilt Raffle or Grape Box Derby Cars racing down the hill form Hoffman Grove. Local children danced the Traditional May Pole Dance and all anticipated the crowning of the May Day Queen!
TODAY, founding settlers of Geyserville still come together and celebrate what has become a town tradition. The crowning of the May Day Queen and her court will be at 1:30. The original May Pole from 1925 will be danced around by local 3rd Grade classes at 2:00. Enjoy live music. Kids can play in a Jump Room, give the Rock Climbing Wall a try, and have fun with face painting! Middle School students will delight you with their Ballet Folklorico performances. There will be a wonderful Geyserville History Display and an egg-toss competition. Wines and beer will be available from the Geyserville Chamber of Commerce to accompany all the tasty eats, and samples from the Kiwanis rib cook-off and competition.
All proceeds benefit community non-profit groups
