Woodside celebrates with 89th May Day Parade and festivities Story by Kate Daly | Photos by Michelle Le W oodside rocked on Saturday, May 7, starting with an early morning May Day Fun Run and pancake breakfast, followed by more traditions: a parade, Maypole dance, barbecue and carnival, all centered near and around the school. The theme of the 89th annual May Day Parade was Rockstar, but in reality it embraced music of all kinds as hundreds of people lined Woodside Road to watch participants walk, ride and roll by in everything from baby strollers to a two-story-tall float filled with Brownies. The parade started at 10 a.m. in front of Woodside School with sheriff ’s deputies and then the grand marshals — Woodside music teachers Kara D’Ambrosio and Beth Dameron — waving to the crowd from an electric blue convertible on a sunny but temperate day. Dozens of groups participated in the parade, most of them throwing candy along the route, which led to Roberts Market and back.
