Vernal Equinox Celebration
on Lantern Hill Coming Soon!

Wednesday, March 20, 2013, at Dawn, 6:50 AM

The Westerly Morris Men will once again celebrate the Vernal Equinox, the beginning of Spring, by dancing at dawn on the summit of Lantern Hill in North Stonington, Connecticut.

Participants in the hike and festivities will start meeting at the base of the hill at 6:00 A.M. on Wednesday, March 20. By 6:20 A.M., all present will start the 10-20 minute hike to the summit. Sunrise will occur at about 6:50 A.M. EDT.  The actual Equinox will occur at 7:02 AM EDT. The timing makes for a rare treat: the dancing will be ongoing at the time of the actual equinox!  For all the details, see HERE.

Veteran musician Rebecca Noreen, new musician to the team, consults with morris man Kurt Hansen on musical details in preparation for Lantern Hill.
Here's a video of the team practicing the Bonnie Green Garters morris  dance in preparation for the Vernal Equinox. See how it's not really that hard - even you could do it!  If you have no interest in sweaty bearded men, it's still worth a watch to see the cutey dancing next to the musician.
