The Mayfest Maypole is a hit for everyone!Maypole Dance Ceremony

Children have a special place during Ober Gatlinburg's Mayfest!  They will enjoy outdoor games, face painting, crafts, Bouncy Houses, and more.  Children are also invited to become involved with the Maypole Ceremony which is a folk dance performed around a tall pole garlanded with greenery or flowers and often hung with ribbons that are woven into complex patterns by the dancers.  Kids of every age are welcome to "get down" with the Chicken Dance!  Just simply flap your wings and strut your stuff during this dance and you'll be a hit every time!
