Shadow Shot Sunday - Dancing in the rain

It poured last Saturday, and I, the new chairman of the Ansonia Cultural Commission, was in charge of the annual Raising of the Irish Flag. The luck of the Emerald Isle was not in sight. But the flag was raised...and the requisite shadows for Shadow Shot Sunday 2 are there - if you look on the street just below the dancers from the Mulkerin School of Irish Dancing. They were ready with smiles that brightened the day, their emerald sweatshirts a perfectly coordinated with the Irish tunes. A wonderful day despite no rainbow :)

I created a slideshow to show that the spirit that was there on this cold and gray day. I'm in the blue coat (don't have a green one, alas) wearing the Irish hat...

Those dancers and other parade participants are real troopers to be out in the rain.

Enjoyed your little video of the Irish spirit. The young dancers in the street look delightful. And apart from rain, it looks cold too...one pic of snow. A great achievement all round on a grim day. You must be proud.

Grim day but a great day.

It's a wonder the dancers didn't slip!

Rain or shine, the show must go on! Hope it didn't cause you too much stress...
