The annual event started as a trashcan full of lemonade, honey sandwiches, a few other picnic foods and drinks, a live, flower-draped donkey, and a may pole. Nowadays there are non-profit (charity) food and drink vendors, live music, and drum circles with all sorts of drums, from hand drums to kettle drums. There is a children's areas with arts and crafts. There are family games such as sack races, costume contests, and an egg toss. Keeping with the tradition of the origin of the festival, there is always a may pole and a live donkey.
