Labor Day Celebration Tiszakecske 2007

May 1st, 2007 was a bit windy in Tiszakecske, but this did not deter the celebration-ready crowd from enjoying family fun and merriment. Adventurous adults enrolled in the cooking contest, while the kids participated in bike races, soccer, and trivia games.

Keeping with established tradition, the local art groups entertained the guests with dazzling performances. Competition dancers, folk dance groups, and modern dance performers took center stage one after the other, and the local zither band enchanted the audience with a concert/jam session that was indeed music to the ears.

Nevertheless, the crowning event of the day still remained the setting up of the Maypole. With the help of the dancers of the Kecske Folk Dance Group, girls and women decorated the city's Maypole with long ribbons, and then fit young men raised it into position.

Traditionally, the Maypole stands in its place till Pentecost (Whit Sunday), when this symbol of renewal and love is „danced out”.  On this particular May Day, however, the members of the folk dance group decided that it wouldn't be fair to visitors who won't be around on Whit Sunday to miss all the fun, so they invited the whole crowd to join the dance right there and then.

 Let the photo documentary tell the rest!
