And that's exactly what it was, cold outside and very rainy. May Day = rain or shine, grade fours dance dances around a May Pole, grade threes dance dances in circles, other grades come to watch. It's something you don't ever forget if you're a true New Westminster-ite. When I danced the May Pole way back when, my partner held the rope above my head on Double's Weave so that I couldn't reach it. Never forget it I'll tell you.
