After parading the maypole and ribbons from Ponderosa Lodge to Maypole Circle, we will ceremonially erect the maypole and all are welcome to dance! All ages. Costumes and festival dress encouraged.
Everyone grabs a ribbon and holds on as we lift the pole into place with offerings and blessings. Every other person faces the same way; half the dancers turn to the right to face clockwise and the other half faces counter clockwise. We pass each other, weaving in and out, over and under, until the ribbon is wrapped around the pole.
