Hand Fastings, Blood Rites, and More!
There are always several ancillary events that occur on Popham Beach at Beltane. It is a great opportunity to hold a Hand-Fasting or other ritual, on a day when most of the Maine Pagan community is going to be around anyway. This has become a popular tradition, and always adds interest and excitement to the day.
