25/07/2012 Coverack Carnival 2012

I took this picture in Coverack Harbour on the evening of the 2012 village carnival. As you can see the weather was idyllic for this annual event. The carnival starts with judging on the lawns of The Bay Hotel and then the St Keverne Brass ...Band leads the procession through the village culminating with basically a good ompa ompa knees-up in the harbour. Small children flirted with the sea on the slipway whilst the bigger ones (some fully clothed) jumped from the harbour wall; afterall it was a high tide! A memorable evening was had by all. I would love to see this event being held within the school summer holiday and not just outside of it. It would be lovely for a wider audience to be able to participate in this event and if the Carnival were bigger maybe more money would be raised for charity? Just a thought :0)
