Ringing of 100 Bells

Where
Upstate SC [ Map ]
Description
Every March 1st at 12pm, the entire community is called to ring bells as a celebration of the beginning of Upstate International month.

The ringing of 100 bells comes from Greenville's Sister City, Bergamo, Italy; where each night at 10 pm, bells across the old city ring 100 times to honor the tradition of closing the gates at that time. Of course the gates no longer close, but the nightly ritual continues.

During the 2014 celebration, over 25 churches and city bells participated. This year we wish to expand even further, and call on all churches, universities, and organizations who have bells to take part. Also, we would appreciate your help in spreading the word, and letting us know if we should contact any specific organizations.

All ringers of the bells will be listed below as a ‘Thank You' in helping us celebrate March International Month!
