While North Stonington is engaging in all seasons, it is especially so on the first day of spring, when at the top of Lantern Hill, you can witness a timeless tradition known as the Morris Dance. Dating back to 1448, the Morris Dance is an English Folk Dance that features rhythmic stepping to choreographed figures by a group of dancers wearing bell pads on their shins. Sticks, handkerchiefs and swords are likely to be woven into the fabric of the dance. Watch this timeless tradition as the sun rises up over the mountain.
