Pageant, Sabbathday Lake

Contributed by United Society of Shakers

In addition to work and play, pageantry was another important aspect in the raising of Shaker children. Pageant themes generally dealt either with nature, as in this picture taken at Sabbathday Lake, patriotism or religious holidays. Traditional pageants celebrating the Nativity and Resurrection were performed at Christmas and Easter respectively.
