As with the other dances, the Midday dancers did not quite manage to get round without a little drizzle. However, the heavy rain held off, meaning the thousands of people that descended on the town could still enjoy the spectacle in its full glory.

Rain meant that the childrens dance had a vastly reduced route. They didn't go into the Lismore Gardens and were finished within an hour.

Lot of people have arrived now despite the weather. Rain held off for most of the childrens dance but has set in again now. Despite the weather however, there is still a good atmosphere in Helston.

A drizzly start has kept the numbers in the crowd lower than usual at this year Flora Day, but there were still plenty of smiles from the dancers as they made their way through the streets of the town. They buoyed up by the cheers of the people who had turned out to see them.

No doubt the lower numbers will be boosted for the midday dance which is the main event of the day.

The children's dance starts at 9.40am when no doubt many parents will turn out to support their children.
