Straw Bear

This weekend is the Straw Bear festival in Whittlesey. When I lived in Whittlesey, this was one of the highlights of the year. The story of the Straw Bear can be found at

The small town will be filled with Morris dancers, Molly dancers, Sword dancers, etc. Here is the Straw Bear banner and a photo of the bear being ceremonially burned.
