Ideas for a school celebration of spring

I'm planning a spring assembly for my school, and I welcome all sources of spring nonsense, jollity and folklore.

Picture about 500 kids, kindergarten through 5th grade, in a large space, gathered together to celebrate the coming of May. There's an emcee, a terrific performer who has worked as a clown and can sing and do comedy and build props. (It isn't me, I'm just planning the spectacle.)
The emcee has some good bits and ideas of his own, and the students will be singing various spring-related songs. But I'd love your ideas about spring celebrations, especially based around traditional May Day festivals. (I've never been to one.)
If you can think of any pageantry, tomfoolery, folklore, poems or participation that kids might enjoy, I'll thank you for them.
