Mayfest King and Queen

ORIGINS OF MAYFEST

The tradition of Mayfest royalty at CCA begin in 1946 with the crowning of Queen Kathleen Cole.

In the early years the event was known as the May Day Celebration.  Along with recognizing the queen and her court, there was a parade down Main Street with floats and a marching band, a traditional May Pole dance, and the queen’s court sporting lovely “Southern belle” dresses and floppy hats.The annual ceremonies were eventually moved to the night before graduation in late May and now include a Spring concert and major school awards.  A May King was added to the program in 1986.  The royalty for this event is selected by a vote of the  faculty and staff.
