May Day

The Wahkiakum Historical Museum Society held a May Day event on Sunday, marking the first of May. One of their volunteers, Tiffany Mora, wanted to bring back the tradition, according to another volunteer, Dayle Olsen.

People wove ribbons around the May pole, picked up flowers to give to loved ones, and shared a little laughter in the sunshine.

Tiffany Mora chats with visitors to the May Day festivities at the museum.

She has another name, but on this day, she insisted she was the Goddess of Spring. The photographer did not argue, remembering that "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." What could be sweeter than spring?
