Great stuff, Andreas, English maypoles are much smaller!

Nice story. I love the idea of the brass band escort.

Thanks guys,

for me this is a bit weird, as I usually distance myself from rural activities...

And then my wife (who is not Bavarian) signed us up for the maypole society ;-)

 

cheers

Well, in Bavaria, people do not dance around the pole ;-)

How deeply will its base need to be sunk into the ground for it to be stable and safe?

There is a concrete base with two metal struts and the pole will be placed between them.

They are only about 1,2m high. when the storm broke the previous pole it was shortly above the struts.

In Merida, Mexico, they dance round the Maypole (although this was shot in December).

 

The costumes of the ladies are smart versions of the dresses typically worn by women of Mayan descent.
