The 10th Ginger Ale, fortunately, was greeted with (mostly) pleasant weather, and so teams gathered at City Hall Plaza for some meetin', greetin' and warm-up dancin' -- with the Big Apple Circus in the background.
From there, the teams broke up into two groups, one touring the Paul Revere Mall, the other Boston Common (below). Great Meadows, Hop Brook, Banbury Cross and Maple Leaf provided the morris, Candy Rapper and Fresh Blood the rapper sword dancing.
As always, morris dancers are the trend-setters when it comes to customized footwear fashion.
The jig "Princess Royal," for two.
