St Pirans Day in Penzance

St Pirans Day you wonder? St Pirans Day is the national day of Cornwall, held on 5th March every year - Saint Piran is the one of the patron saints of Cornwall and the patron saint of tinminers. How does Penzance celebrate St Pirans day? Well, through an annual performance of the the St Piran furry dance and procession through the streets by 500 children and annual St Pirans Schools Concert - of course!
