Welcome (Back) Spring with Bells On!


I visited one of my favorite historical spots on Saturday, the old Peirce Mill on Rock Creek at Tilden Street and Beach Drive.

They were literally (and historically) ringing in spring. Though the Mill only dates back to the 1820s, dancers were welcoming in the season as in England in the 16th century.

Call it tradition, choreography or cosplay – but enjoy 45 seconds of what is called Morris Dancing – with elaborately costumed performers wearing bells, waving handkerchiefs and wielding sticks.
