  • I watched the Truro carnival today... much smaller - took about 30 minutes to go past - the highlight being 'Falmouth Marine Band' - a group of men who approach music in a typically cornich manner by ensuring they are sloshed before starting, in a very public place and well armed with lude jokes and oil drums as well as whatever outfit they reckon suits the occasion.

    Its a shame that insurance and penny-pinching has reduced regional carnivals to such small affairs - I remember the village carnival in Budock (population of a couple of thousand) involved hundreds of walkers and a dozen trucks as well as smaller floats now Cornwalls largest carnival had only 3 lorries, a handful of cars and about 20 walkers. The 3 bands were good but still not as good as during the 80's when everybody took part.
