Zachary Maypole Celebration

Posted by zachary on April 07, 2017

Zachary Maypole Celebration

Join us at the Zachary Depot on Main Street in Downtown Zachary for a morning of gardening, music and arts on Saturday, May 13th from 9 am – 1 p.m. at the Zachary Maypole Celebration.  The celebration will begin with the Official Maypole Dance performed by the Children’s Moving Company behind the Zachary Depot. 

Visitors can enjoy live music by local musicans from The Music Tree, face-painting, tours and great deals on affordable artwork by talented artists from the Regional Arts Council and Zachary High School students.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, the first 125 children can plant Zinnia Seeds as a take-home Mother’s Day Gift, assisted by local Girl Scout Troop #10145. Cub Scout Pack #72 will be on hand, working on their service project planting daylilies behind the Zachary Depot. Tours of the Historical Depot will be on-going during the celebration and children will have an opportunity to “blow the train whistle” while on the tour.  Drop by the armillary sundial sphere, located in the Boudreaux Memorial Gardens behind the Depot and learn how to tell time, as the astronomers did in the 1600’s. 

Plan to spend the morning at the Zachary Depot!  CC’s Streetside Café will be on location throughout the event selling their famous gourmet coffees, muffins and pastries.
