Thursday May 1, 2008, 5:30a - May Day morning,
Baylands Nature Preserve
Come help us dance up the Sun in Palo Alto on MayDay
morning (we do it every year, and it always works - good thing, too!) and
celebrate. It's not so much that we believe the sun won't come up on Mayday without
some dancing, it's just that if we didn't dance, and the sun didn't come up, we'd
feel really bad.
If you haven't been out to see the sunrise celebration, give it a try. It's very beautiful, and while the
sleepiness lasts only as long as it takes you to get there, the happy glow lasts all day!
Not in Palo Alto? - that's ok - there's May Day dancing
all over the West Coast

from teams all around the Bay Area as we do an entire day to gather and dance out in a "mix and match" fashion
from these other teams. In lieu of kit (costume), we dress in black and white only, but still get pretty creative
with ribbons, hats, vests, (not to mention them with skirts, striped tights and corsets). The colors have been
