A Guide to First Friday May

First Friday MayHippie days are here again for First Friday. The Nyack Art Collective has organized tie-dying workshops, a drum circle, a circus parade and a Maypole so that you can party like it’s 1969.  The public is urged to explore their inner flower child and turn Main Street, Nyack into Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco during the summer of love.

This month’s counter cultural carnival includes:

  • A performance and parade by the young people of the Amazing Grace Circus,
  • 60s music by the Dangerbirds,
  • a drumming circle
  • an Interactive Maypole
  • a photo booth

These far-out festivities take place at the Main Street Gazebo between 5-8p

Neat TieIf you need help flying your psychedelic flag, an art project called “Neat tie-dye t-shirts” will be on hand. People are welcome to bring their own t-shirt and tie-dye for $3.50 or buy a t-shirt and tie-dye for $6.
