When it comes to spring traditions in the Tri-Cities, nothing beats the thrill of May Day in Port Coquitlam. In it’s 94th year kids from across the city dressed up in colourful May Day shirts and gorgeous spring gowns having practiced for months for this, opening day. There under the roof of the old Rec Centre, children pulled the colourful ribbons taught as they charmed our hearts with the traditional Maypole dance. The evening was full of music and dancing, as local musician Chersea performed both her original music and popular covers, delighting the crowd, bringing the Royal Party to their feet.
This year my family was lucky enough to have two kids in the Royal Party. We’re incredibly proud of all of the hard work they’ve put into their routines and performances. We welcome you to follow along on this photo journey of May Day in Port Coquitlam. Make sure to check out all of the events happening in the city this week, culminating in the May Day Parade this Saturday.
A big thanks to all the city staff & May Day Committee who helped put on another amazing festival!
