More Beltane Walpurgis May Day musings.

I am going to admit right now, that tomorrow, May Day, Beltane to so many, will see me dressed in, yes, RennFaire Garb. I might even grab a ribbon and dance at the May Pole, should ribbon and pole be available.

But you see, I will be at a RennFaire type event. I will be at the Hudson Valley MayFaire and Farmers Market. http://www.hudsonvalleymayfaire.com/
This is a fundraiser for the Queens Galley of the Hudson Valley, a not for profit organization that provides awareness, education, relief and prevention of food insecurity in America. The Queens Galley also runs a food pantry and soup kitchen, serving 3 meals a day to those who need it, any and every day of the year. http://www.queensgalley.org/

This doesn't negate anything that I might have said about my own observances because...(many of you know the chorus, right?) a Cross Quarter day happens on the astronomical midpoint between the Quarters. That happens May 5th this year. The night of May 4th, I shall light the fire. I will dance. I will feel the tides change and the magic swell.

Sometimes, its good to be pedantic. I get to have the public fun and silliness and the real stuff, too.

Is this the fair in Cornwall, NY? If so, I'll be there too!

This fair is in the town of Hudson. Looking at a map, it is somewhat north of Cornwall.

Willow, there are MayFaires all over the place tomorrow. But if you happen to find yourself at the Hudson Valley Mayfaire, it would be cool to run into one another!

one of the reasons why home projects were done Saturday. A nod to freshness. Cross quarter day it is! Although I must admit to giving a nod to 'die hexen' dancing on the Brocken.
