No one knows for sure where the tradition of weaving ribbons around a maypole began (some cite medieval Germanic rites associated with spring).

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.
