Thousands will line the streets of Penzance on Saturday, for Mazey Day.

The parades and entertainment to celebrate Midsummer and Feast of St John are part of Golowan.

Visit Cornwall reckons the festival as a whole brings £1.3 million into the local economy.

Director Tracy Bowers tells Pirate FM it is a major boost: "With every visitor people need accommodation, restaurants to eat in and places to go and be entertained so we just know by the swell of people in Penzance that there is this funding coming in which is a good thing for Penzance.

"We would still hope that some businesses will really recognise what Golowan brings to Penzance in terms of visitors and business opportunities as well and really just help the festival out."
