Praa Sands raft race for ShelterBox: PICTURES
12:00pm Tuesday 20th August 2013 in News
Rafts of all shapes and sizes took to the seas on Sunday for the Praa Sands Raft Race.
Now in its sixth successive year, the event takes place to raise funds for Helston-based aid charity ShelterBox.
Approximately 30 rafts took part in the race - and they were sight to behold.
A giant piñata style raft, shaped like a colourful horse, competed against a dragon and some Roman centurions.
Those riding the rafts were dressed in similarly fitting fancy dress.
As a lead up to the race, a Pirate Party took place the night before and on the day stalls were in place selling a mixture of goods.
Live music was also performed on the afternoon and into the evening of the event.
All the money raised will go to ShelterBox, which supplies emergency aid to victims of disasters around the world.
A spokesperson for the event said: “It was a fun packed day enjoyed by everyone who attended, raising money for a worthy cause.”
