This year the committee decided to open up the attendants positions to boys and girls to accompany the Carnival Queen.
In more recent years there had been no interest in being a page boy.
This year Tom entered and as he was slightly older than a usual page boy age we felt it more appropriate to make him Carnival King.
...of the new this year adult sack races, given by the family in tribute to very long serving committee member David Hill.
David had suggested that we introduced sack races for adults.
David Hill Ladies Trophy - Charlene Lamy
David Hill Mens trophy - Troy Taylor
As the tide was in for most of the day we were able to re-introduce two events last held 7 years ago. Cork bobbing and Donut racing.
We were grateful to the Polruan Coastguard Team for providing water safety swimmers.
As ever, we were completely blown away by the costumes on display this year and we urge you to check out our GALLERY to see some more of them. We had all ages, shapes AND sizes... from President Donald Trump to Cleopatra and the entire Simpsons cast.
We love each and every costume and can't wait to see what everyone comes up with next year!
