Beautiful colour footage of Holywood May Queen. A flamboyant jester leads the way as crowds of children flock to celebrate Holywood's May Queen.
Crowned with flowers a graceful May Queen glides through Holywood with her delighted young attendants. A bemused crowd watch the jester skip and kick her way to the Maypole. Flanked by a large crowd she leads the Maypole Dance in front of the passive May Queen. Despite the absence of sound the children’s enthusiastic performances are delightful to watch. Before the speeches begin catch a glimpse of the Victoria Bar whilst people watch the festivities from High Street.
