Coverack and St Keverne have joined together for the annual Coverack Carnival.

Fancy dress clad participants gathered on the lawn of the Bay Hotel for judging by Jane and Richard Rossiter, who have been visitors to Coverack for 40 years.

As impartial judges the couple had the challenging task of picking winners from costumes that ranged from a topical royal baby theme to owls, farmers and 101 Dalmatians.

Coverack School ran a stall selling cupcakes and Pimms to entrants and spectators.

After the judging, St Keverne Band led a colourful procession from the Bay Hotel gardens to the harbour, where carnival queen Holly Martin and her attendants, Lily Relton and Niamh Richards, helped present rosettes and prizes.

Liz Hanley, secretary of the Coverack Carnival and Regatta Committee, said: “The weather was brilliant and thanks to all the participants, visitors and locals, the event was deemed a great success.

“A lot of entries came from St Keverne so many thanks to them for making the evening such fun.”

The band entertained the crowd who remained on the harbour enjoying a barbecue and awaiting the raffle results while enjoying the evening’s sunshine.

Mrs Hanley added: “The committee would like to thank those who helped in any way to make this event so memorable and successful, and especially the Bay Hotel for allowing us to hold the event on their lawn.”
