Celebrate May Day With Beltane In The Park
There's a whole world out there that few of us know about.
"Beltane" celebrates "spring at its peak and the coming summer" according to the Boston Library. Apparently, it's a Celtic and/or Pagan holiday. I think it sounds like a nice day to spend in the park checking out some cool crafts.
Among the items listed for sale are soaps, jewelry, art, and other "where did you get that?" kind of stuff. In addition to the booths, there will be a bunch of fun distractions like drum circles, food trucks, and actual classes and demonstrations.
As I mentioned at the top, there seems to be an entire universe of people out there putting on really cool events that are just now becoming public knowledge (this Beltane In The Park is in its 13th year and I had no idea). I'm all for this. I'm all in for homemade gifts. As a matter of fact, you know Mother's Day is on the 8th, right? Homemade, cool soaps, and candles are a really cool way to say that you put some thought into moms special day.
Now you can of course just show up, but there is a recommended list of things to bring to enhance your experience:
Things to Bring:
-Your own water and beverages
-Something to sit on: chair or blanket
-Drum or other noise makers
-Sunscreen, bug repellent
-Dish for the potluck feast
-Money for vendors and food truck
The event is free and it will be tomorrow (Saturday) from 11 to 7 at Clapp Park
