Wilbraham Peach Blossom Festival

June 19, 2021 12-7:30

May Day Celebration! May 1, 2021

May Day, or the first day of May, is traditionally a celebration of spring and the awakening of nature after the winter months. 

Historically, people would leave a paper basket or cone with spring flowers and sweets on each other’s doorsteps, usually anonymously. The custom was to knock on the door and yell, “May Basket!,” and then run! If the person delivering the basket was discovered, the recipient would give chase and try to steal a kiss!

May Day is usually associated with flowers, dancing, and maypoles and sometimes the ritual of crowning a “May King” and “May Queen”.

May Day celebration has been reintroduced to Wilbraham by the Peach Blossom Festival as a safe and socially distanced activity for 2021 to bring us together this spring. You can share your love for your neighbors in Wilbraham by sending a May Basket to someone you know! Print out this paper cone, or make your own cone or basket, and join the celebration!

Stay safe, socially distance, wear your mask and get vaccinated if you can!  We will see you next year, June 2022, when we can all get together safely!

The 2021 Peach Blossom Festival has been cancelled due to Coronavirus concerns.
