About The Event

Ever heard of the May baskets? People would leave a paper basket or cone  containing spring flowers and sweets on each other’s doorsteps, usually  anonymously.  This tradition was popular through the 19th and 20th centuries,  especially with children or sweethearts. The custom was to knock on the  door, yell “May basket!” and then run.   We think this will be a fun way to bring kindness and a smile to our  neighbors and residents at local nursing homes. At the event, we will  make our May Day baskets. You will take them home to deliver and spread  joy!


  • Admission Ticket

    Every person attending the event must have a ticket. Example: A family with two parents and two kids would pay for 4 tickets.
