Looe Carnival Week

Well this week is Looe Carnival week and as I write this there are crowds of holiday makers in the town enjoying the festivities that have been put on for their entertainment and the weather has been perfect. So far this week there has been a vintage and classic transport display with boot sale and a Bird of Prey show.
The traditional floral dance was on Monday with the carnival queen choosing in the evening although I believe it is now called Royalty Choosing which I presume to mean in these days of equality it is now open to boys and girls!
On the beach yesterday was the sand modelling competition and thankfully the weather held dry for all the budding sculptors.
On the Seafront tonight is the Polperro Fisherman's Choir who are always a resounding success and whenever I hear them it does send a shiver down my spine.


Tomorrow, Friday, on East Looe beach from 2pm will be an afternoon of children's entertainment with a Punch and Judy show, and surely we have all booed at Mr Punch, balloon modelling and some magical fun.
Of course the highlight of any carnival week has to be the Grand Carnival Procession on Saturday which this year will be judged at 6pm at Hannafore, and at 7pm lead by St Pinnock and Liskeard Silver Band will make it way to East Looe with majorettes, floats and walkers.
So whether you are in Looe on holiday or planning to come down for any of the festivities then do come early, get some fish and chips and sit by the river, but beware the seagulls. Last week I lost a sandwich and a scone on the same day to one and if I see him again he will be in trouble.
If you rather have a more relaxing meal then enjoy one of the many cafes here and please remember to give generously to the collections for the Lions Club of Looe Charities.
