Beltane Sabbat

In upholding Beltane tradition, attendees enjoyed creating a makeshift Maypole from ribbons and a tree located within Lake Wheeler Park. As part of the ritual, attendees braided positive energies into their lives and into the Pagan community as whole through a ribbon band which ended in bells. Each person chose colors based on what energies they represent. They were asked to hang them somewhere the wind might catch them so every time they ring it helps spread and manifest that energy and intention.
