FPS Maypole Dancing Celebration 2023

First Parish of Sudbury and the community joined together on the Sudbury Town Commons to celebrate May Day on a balmy day, following Music Sunday. Brad Saylor led dancers in learning Maypole dances and Tom Kruskal’s Hopbrook Morris dancers entertained delighted onlookers. 

Why does First Parish celebrate this tradition?
Unitarian Universalists create meaningful communities by drawing from many wisdom traditions, including world religions and Earth-Centered identities. First Parish has been dancing around the Maypole for over 30 years!
