May Day celebration and rib cook-off is May 6
This year it will be 1-5 p.m. Sunday, May 6, weather permitting, when Geyservillians young and old will gather for a day of good old fashioned fun. The Geyserville Historical Society will have lots of photographs and school yearbooks. The grade school aged kids will dance around the May Pole, and you can take your chance with the egg toss (uncooked, so tossers beware).
The May Day Queen will arrive in a convertible to be crowned, and Ballet Folklorico will preform in turn of the century Mexican clothing, sombreros included.
May Day would not be complete with lots of local food. Two years ago the Kiwanis Club was invited to hold a rib cook off that has since become so popular eight teams are now involved.
The Kiwanis are still looking for more teams to participate. Text Ryan Petersen at 529-2409 for details. Save room for the Boosters’ hamburgers and hot dogs, and Posse & Delac’s Mexican favorites. Beer and wine will be sold by the Chamber of Commerce.
This year, Manuel Diaz also will demonstrate the art of rope making he learned from his father in Mexico. Thanks to Calpine, the Climbing Wall & Jumpie House, all events free.
If you have been to the May Day Celebrations in the past, you know this is about as hometown Geyserville as it gets. Iff you have never been, this is your year to experience Geyserville in all of its hometown glory.
It is all happening 1-5 p.m. Sunday, May 6, at Hoffman Picnic Grounds, just past Canyon Road on Geyserville Ave.
