California Revels May Day Celebration

California Revels May Day Celebration
at The Oakland Zoo
Saturday, May 2, 12:30-1:30PM
Oakland Zoo, 9777 Golf Links Road, Oakland
included with Zoo admission

Featuring music with the California Revels Solstice Ensemble, presentation of the May Queen and the selection of the 2015 Jack of the Green, and a little dancing, May Day at the Zoo is always a wonderful way to welcome the spring and warmer weather.  

Perhaps the highlight of the proceedings is the May Pole where we invite children of all ages to take part in the annual May dance (no experience necessary) and weaving of the ribbons for another year. There is no charge for the event except for regular zoo admission.  
We will be at the Children's Zoo location within the Oakland Zoo beginning at 12:30PM and will sing and dance for about an hour.  Bring the entire family for this traditional nod to spring.
