42th Annual May Festival! @ the Woods Hole Ballpark
May 24 @ 10:00 am
Pony rides, dunk tank, May pole, dog show, pie eating contest, community tug-0-war… Activities, games, music, gifts, food – come join the fun! It’s a Woods Hole tradition.
The rain date for this event is Sunday, May 25th.
This annual event, sponsored by the Woods Hole Community Association, is an occasion to celebrate the return of warm weather and to enjoy music, crafts, food, games, fresh air as well as conversation with friends, neighbors and visitors.
This community celebration kicks-off with an exuberant and fun parade at 10:00 a.m. We invite everyone to join in. The parade begins at the Woods Hole School and proceeds down School Street, then Water Street, around Eel Pond to Millfield Street, and ends at the ballpark on Bell Tower Lane. Music and costumed participants have always made the parade enjoyable for both onlookers and fellow paraders. All that is required is colorful attire and/or a noisemaker. If you are participating in the parade, please plan to assemble at the Woods Hole School at 9:45 a.m.
Come enjoy the Maypole dance, live music, a circus act, delicious food, and pony rides.
