This coming weekend will have a lot going on between the Festival of Nations in St. Paul and the May Day Parade and celebration at Powederhorn Park. Due to my newness to the area, I’ll defer to N.S. Gill from About.com for a description of the event:
May Day is celebrated on May 6, 2007.
On May Day (actually, the first Sunday in May) from 1 p.m., Minneapolis celebrates May Day at Powderhorn Park. Starting with a colorful parade filled with living puppets from The Heart of the Beast Puppet Theater, the parade and parade watchers wend their way down Bloomington Avenue, in South Minneapolis, until they reach Powderhorn Park. The Heart of the Beast living-puppet cast then performs along the banks of Powderhorn Lake in front of crowds gathered on the hillsides.
