Holywood May Day Festival

 

Mayday is dancing round the Maypole day in Holywood. The Maypole Fair once a very simple community festival is now a medieaval themed event.  The stalls run by the community charities are there as are the school children dancing round the Maypole, but “actors” have been introduced for sword fighting, juggling and wandering about the town in costume.

 

I spent the day talking to some of the people involved in the festival.
