MCPL Mosinee Branch brings back tradition of May Day with craft event
Do you remember the tradition of May Day baskets? This beautiful tradition has sadly been lost over time, but the Marathon County Public Library is bringing it back on April 30 from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Mosinee Branch Library, 123 Main St., Mosinee.
In years gone by, people would celebrate the first day of May with a charming tradition of making small baskets filled with flowers or candies and placing them on the doors of friends and neighbors as a way of welcoming them into warmer weather. Kids are invited to make their own May Day baskets using a variety of provided craft supplies. They can then take their baskets home and surprise someone with it on May 1!
This event is free and open to the public with no registration required. For more information, call 715-693-2144 or visit https://mcpl.us/events/4754.
