Covered Bridge Park Dancers

(pre-script: To get the most out of this post, please read it as the song: "Heavenly Day" plays. Go down to the playlist, click it on, then come back and resume reading this post. I'll wait...) (...still waiting...)

Dancing takes many different forms.
We discovered a new one at the park today.
I have no idea what it's called, but it involved about 7 people strapping jingle bells to their shins, holding large sticks, performing some choreographed moves that involved tossing and catching each others sticks and randomly singing at certain places, as a mandolin player and a violin player played the accompaniment. Oh, and there was also a girl who's job it was to stand on the side and catch any wayward sticks. She was necessary at least a few times.

It's like one of those interpretive dance groups. Sounds like it was pretty entertaining to watch.

Those are neat pictures. I like the kids watching! Growing up in Iowa, our covered bridges were "The Bridges of Madison County"


Is that what you say??

The question is - what day of the week was this. If it was a weekday, I would think these people should be @ work. I am not sure. I tried to google this dancing phenomenon, but no such luck yet on anything conclusive on covered bridge, stick waving, bell jingling dancers.
