Strange May 1st stuff happens on Oxford street

OXFORD, 1 May 2009.  Outside the Rose and Crown pub in North Parade some strange and very Englishe stuff is happening today.

The street is decked out with streamers and an audience takes note of people dressed in gaudy colours and one even appearing to be a tree. Because it’s May Day, that’s why. What’s going to happen in the video below? Well the tree is going to stand around a bit, the Morris Dancers are going to get a drink, and pretty soon they’ll start waving handkerchiefs.

Here’s some stills.

    Although Tree is probably of Plastic Like Silk, Its Fun Idea & ALL You Have To Do IS ASK.
