VIDEO: Youngsters paint Falmouth yellow for the Spring Festival
Falmouth is looking decidedly more spring like after a group of primary pupils and university students helped distribute 8,000 daffodils to mark the start of the Falmouth Spring Festival.
A total of 70 youngsters and 20 students spent the morning delivering the flowers to businesses, visitors and residents and helping to dress the windows of around 30 shops.
Paint the Town Yellow has established itself as the first event in the festival which runs until Sunday.
Children from various primary schools worked alongside art and design students and with businesses who had signed up to have their shop windows turned yellow.

Prior to the event the students led workshops to help the children create spring-themed creations and that art work was installed in the windows.
"This is a really exciting project for us," said Sam Hudspith, Falmouth University's UK recruitment and outreach coordinator.
"It provided a great opportunity for out students to gain valuable experience and its a fun and creative way for the schools to interact with the university."
