Morris May Day

Thursday, May 1, 2014, throughout the Bay Area

Every year, BACDS teams and others join in a world-wide celebration to dance the Sun up and celebrate the 1st of May.  In the Bay Area you'll find us that Wednesday morn in Sebastopol, San Francisco, Berkeley, Palo Alto, and Santa Cruz, with lots of dancing the whole weekend long.  It's an age-old tradition!  We've been doing it for decades, and the Sun keeps coming up, so we must be doing something right.  Come out and join us!
