VIDEOS & PICTURES: St Piran's Day parade in Falmouth
The people of Falmouth took to the streets today to celebrate St Piran's Day.
Local school children, musicians, performers and dignitaries paraded through the town to mark the feast day of the patron saint of tin miners.
The Falmouth event was one of a number taking place across Cornwall to celebrate St Piran – who according to legend was tossed into the sea in the 6th Century by the kings of Ireland, who were jealous of his healing powers.
