CDRC Sponsors “May Pole” Decorating Competition for May in Calais

Calais Downtown Revitalization Coalition (CDRC) is sponsoring a “May Pole “ lamp post decorating competition for entire month of May as part of its May Days celebration in downtown .  Anyone can participate, whether you are an organization, church, school class, individual, or business. Here’s your chance to be super creative and have fun, too. There is no fee.

This event welcomes you to think about the traditional May Pole and come up with your interpretation to be decorated on downtown lamp posts. Whether your theme is a celebration of spring or the Gaelic heritage, this promises to be an interesting way to push spring forward, especially after the winter we just had. Decorations need to be up by May 1.

To receive guidelines, register, and be assigned a lamp post, you can contact Carole at 454-1110 or Diane at 214-6581.  Absolutely no tape can be used to secure your decorations to the post.  If zip ties will be needed, they will be available. Keep informed on our Facebook page:
