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 http://www.strawbear.org.uk

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.
