Those Mazey days of summer bring colour to Penzance
Penzance was transformed into a sea of colour on Saturday as the West Cornish town's annual Mazey Day festivities got underway.
Mazey Day is the centrepiece of the ten day long Golowan Festival and things kicked off with the Children's Parade, or Crowst Parade, widely considered as the mainstay of the day.
Events and live music continued in to the night and Sunday when Quay Fair Day took place with a variety of activities for adults and children.
During the week, the people of the town choose their mock mayor to lead festivities on the Saturday and a variety of music and cultural events took place.

Golowan is reported to have been one of the last mid-summer festivals to be practised in Cornwall and was revived in 1991 as a move to celebrate the area's local heritage.
Tracy Bowers, who became director of the festival this year, said she was delighted with how things went.
She said: "Things have gone fabulously well. Lots of events have been sold out and what the schools and community groups made for the procession was just outstanding
"We had a very well attended Quay Fair day with lots of children's activities.
"I wanted the festival to have the same feel that it always has because I think the festival works really well but we have have also managed to include some new things."
