May Fair tradition continues

The Maypole Dance

The annual May Fair at Chadds Ford Elementary School continued last week. It was the 69th such fair at the school that began May 21, 1949.

“Without question,” school Principal Shawn Dutkiewicz told the crowd, “the reason it continues to be a part of our CFE culture is all of you. The Chadds Ford Elementary School family spans many generations and many of you return each year to participate and keep the tradition going.”

The first May Fair was a daylong affair that included a pet show, a May Procession, the Maypole Dance, a rodeo, a softball game, a community sing and a square dance. The Square dance closed the event at 11 p.m.

As has been the case for years, however, it’s now a student event with kids from each grade singing songs. Highlights include the Parachute Party and the Maypole Dance.

Third-graders sing "Aqui."
