Golowan 2019...WHAT A WEEKEND!!!!

As I write another glorious Golowan weekend is winding down and I'm moved to reflect, is there a better place to be at Midsummer than Penzance? The fireworks and revels of Mazey Eve with the dancers winding sinuously through the streets, following Penglaz in the serpent dance. The early morning of Mazey Day as the Golowan Band awakens the town, the clamour and excitement of the parades through the day, families picnicking in Morrab Gardens. The slightly more chilled atmosphere of the waterfront on Quay Fair Day.
