The forecast of bad weather meant that half the stalls booked for this year’s Mylor May Fair didn’t turn up but that didn’t stop the majority of the vilage, and beyond, from enjoying themselves.
The heavy rain failed to materialise and despite the occasional squally shower the sun still managed to shine for most of the day.
The fair was opened by the Rev Jeff James and hundreds of people descended on Mylor Playing fields to browse the stalls that were there buying plants, books and bric a brac.
There were also games to play including hunt the buried treasure as well as face painting, swinging gondalas, go carts and a lazer tunnel.
The scheduled May Pole dance by children from Mylor Bridge School was cancelled because of the high winds but the children ran races instead including the famous Mylor Playing Field lap.
The Falmouth Fire Brigade also turned up and were popular with children wanting to have a go on the fire engine.
The local police also appeared with one of their patrol cars and let off the siren to the delight of the crowd.
