The Rite of Spring

It is official spring has sprung in Stratford.
It was a beautiful day for the 2010 annual Swan Release.
Locals and Tourists aligned the street to great our majestic birds as they were piped back down to the Avon River after spending the winter in their cozy paddock. It was great to see both the excitement of the birds and the people to thinking yes it is time to get out of the house and enjoy the beauty of the town we call home.
Stratford seems to be buzzing as seasonal preparations have begun for what promises to be another exciting season at the Shakespeare festival. We look forward to seeing old friends return and new friends who will join us for the first time.
Happy Spring to all and we look forward to seeing you soon.

  1. So glad you caught this on video. We had to miss it because of a family get-together. My son's girlfriend had never seen a swan so we visited their winter quarters. I am going to forward this to her. I'm sure she'll love it.

    I also have a Stratford blog. It is called My Stratford! and looks at Stratford through the eyes of a citizen here. Check it out at Maybe you could add a link to your site. I will do likewise.

    Have a great summer season.
