Up The Tower

Up The Tower

Going "Up The Tower" is the engagement tradition whereby a couple goes up Blanchard Tower and rings the bell to announce their engagement. Couples often "mark" the occasion with graffiti and leave behind memorabilia. Newly engaged couples ring the bell for three sets of seven and a newly wed couple ring seven sets of three. For many years a section of the Record listed the names of couples who had recently celebrated this long-standing tradition.
