Children Picking Wild Flowers
May Day Festival May 2, 1925
Alan's theme this week features a Greek Cymbal Dance and it's just in time for May Day Celebrations. Since I've already posted a May Day post for Sepia Saturday before, A Maying We Shall Go, see it here, I'm going to stretch Alan's theme into, Do Dah Day!
Directly from Birmingham, Alabama here are some photos from
The Do Dah Day Parade

You can view more of her collection at The Library of Congress Photos and Prints department.
The Do Dah Day event has been going on for more than thirty years, and it offers a chance for folks to dress up their pets (mainly dogs) as well as yourself, and to parade through town together. All funds raised go to animal charities.
Plenty of places for pets to cool down or catch a drink of water.

I'm curious to hear what you do to celebrate May Day?
