Ruth writes: Weather has never deterred Morris dancers in High Park on May 1. “… We once danced a thunderstorm to a standstill here!” wrote Leo Nelson when asked what they did in bad weather.
Last Sunday was no exception. It was their 37nd consecutive May Day dance, now a Toronto tradition. While no one could see the sun rise because of fog, the fun, liveliness and skill were there as always, a treat for those of us who were able to get up early to watch. I hope our readers can come next year. Mark your calendar now. The group never advertises. Did you know that Morris dancers were first heard of in rural 15th century England?
Here are some of my images of that free, happy event.
