The Hamilton Farmers Market Co-op will have a May Fest for the kids Saturday, May 2.

The annual event opens the season for the popular market on Bedford and South 3rd by the Ravalli County Museum. This year's May Fest theme is "Here's the Buzz! It's all about the Pollinators!"

The market will open at about 9 a.m., but the "Children of all ages" parade will be at 11:30 a.m., starting at the American Legion Park on South 2nd. Following that will be May pole dances on the Museum lawn (see photo) at 11:45. Music will be by the Singing Salamanders.

The market will have its usual operating hours, wrapping up about 12:30 p.m. each Saturday through the summer and autumn.
