There are undoubtedly more foolish things one could do than to rise before dawn, ascend Pack Monadnock wearing knickers, strap bells to your shins, and prance around waving, alternately, hankies and sticks at each other, with the temperature below freezing on the first May morning.
Perhaps it was the gorgeous sunrise, the briskness of the air, or maybe just the idea that anyone nutty enough to be up there was probably a good candidate for fun. In any case, the mountain was abundant with good cheer as the Harrisville Morris Women and The Jack-in-the-Green Morris danced, sang and joked (yes we must not forget the fool) in the spring. Camera’s were abundant as well. Go to MFS TV to see some video, or to this year’s May Day Morris Dance photo page.
