Help make Truro St Piran's Day parade better than ever
3:00pm Tuesday 8th January 2013 in News
Organisers of this year’s St Piran’s Day parade in Truro are looking for more people to get involved so that they can build on the success of last year’s event.
Truro’s 2012 Pirantide celebration was one of the biggest and most vibrant to date, with more people than ever taking part.
Members of societies and clubs in the area joined with children from the city’s schools to process through the streets of the city, with the parade culminating in a celebration of Cornish culture outside Truro Cathedral.
Even shops in the city centre joined in the festivities by decorating their windows with a Cornish theme.
This year the parade’s organisers would like to build on the momentum from last year and get even more people involved.
Elizabeth Stewart, the parade co-ordinator, said: “We’d like to increase community engagement in the parade and give the people of Truro a greater sense of ownership of the event.
“We’re looking for people to take part in the parade itself, people to man traffic signs and help steward the participants, and people to assist in organising specific aspects of the parade in future years.”
The 2013 Truro St Piran’s Day parade will take place on Tuesday, March 5, leaving the Waterfall Gardens off St George’s Road at 1.15pm and finishing at High Cross with performances by schoolchildren .
