May Day Festival 2012



The Portland School of Ballet dancers, above left, kicked off the annual May Pole dance at Lafayette Park. The dancers demonstrated the various steps to children in the audience. Kennebunk’s May Day Festival celebrated its 14th year Saturday and the May Pole dance is a yearly tradition. Above right, Ivy Hammer-Gumbrell, 7, a student at Kennebunk Elementary School, tries her luck at scaling a 30- foot rock wall at the festival. Left, opening day for Kennebunk-Kennebunkport Little League coincided with the annual celebration and each team had their chance at fame by walking in the May Day parade down Main Street. The Bats took every opportunity to celebrate their team. More photos page 18 and 19.
