Flash mob hits Annapolis mall

Remember flash mobs?

They were a hit for a while. And then they thankfully drifted away, so we could all move on with our lives.

There was the one at Grand Central Station at which a whole bunch of people went frozen. There was the big T-Mobile dance in London. There was even a rather memorable one at Good Stuff Eatery on Capitol Hill, featuring a man — with the help of singers — proposing to his wife. Sweet.

Well, finally, perhaps a little late, a flash mob came to Annapolis.

The Teelin School of Irish Dance troupe hit Westfields Annapolis Mall on Saturday for St. Patrick’s Day. The children from the Columbia group performed for about four minutes, and then they went back to shopping. You can watch below.
