As it has for 93 years, Woodside on Saturday, May 2, shut down its main street for a parade featuring kids in costumes, dressed-up horses, cool old cars and local "dignitaries."

In addition to the annual parade, there was a carnival, fun run, Maypole dance and pancake breakfast.

Woodside Elementary School superintendent Beth Polito led the parade as Grand Marshal.

After the parade, Anne Wright was named Citizen of the Year by the Woodside PTA.

Kassia Kingsley, who co-chaired the May Day event with Kerri Stenson, said Ms. Wright has "been a tireless volunteer for the past nine years," including several stints as PTA head room parent, working on the PTA's After School Enrichment Program, operations manager for the operetta and driving "on virtually every field trip," even on some her children were not attending.

"You're always thinking of others, putting them first, and making them feel special and for this we honor you today," Ms. Kingsley said.

As usual much of the town turned out for the annual parade.
