Golowan (mazey day)

Mazey day, Indian dancers.
Midsomers day is the church feast of
st. John the baptist. St. John is the patron saint of Penzance and the name 'Pen' 'sans' means holy head which refers to him. Golowan's celebration was suppressed for a hundred years by the victorians and brilliantly revived at the end of the last century by the local community and is called Mazey day. Everyday should be like that, It was like the medieval times but with spungebob squarepants balloons.
I took some of the worst pictures of my life unfortunately.
