Pottsgrove Manor May Fair

No one knows for sure where the tradition of weaving ribbons around a maypole began (some cite medieval Germanic rites associated with spring). But there's no denying that it's fun to do and results in a colorful display. The maypole dance at Pottsgrove Manor is just part of a day's celebration that encompasses magic, puppets, crafts, living history and hands-on activities.
