The Wolf Hills Community School will host a family-friendly May Day celebration and bonfire on April 28 at the Community Center of Abingdon.
Victoria Blevins, Director of Administration for WHCS, said “I have always loved the beauty and fun of the May Pole dance. The May Day tradition is something I want to share with the children.”
The fun begins at 4:30 PM with seasonal May Day crafts and an opportunity to tie dye souvenir t-shirts. At 6:00 PM there will be a May Pole dance, and the lighting of the bonfire. The rest of the evening will be filled with a program of family-friendly storytelling, music, sing-alongs and of course s’mores.
Blevins explained, “There’s really nothing like this event going on in the community. The storytelling and campfire: It’ll be something parents can do with their kids. These are fun childhood traditions.”
Admission includes crafts supplies and instruction, a t-shirt to tie dye, s’mores, and an evening of entertainment. Beer, wine, and food will be available for purchase from local vendors and all proceeds will benefit the Wolf Hills Community School.
The WHCS May Day celebration runs rain or shine from 4:30-9 PM at the Abingdon Community Center. Bring your own lawn chair if you like.
The Community Center of Abingdon is located at 300 Senior Dr, Abingdon VA.
Tickets are $5 for children and $10 for adults and may be purchased in advance at www.wolfhillscommunityschool.org/mayday. Day of tickets will be $7 for children and $12 for adults.
