WATCH: Baby christened in Truro circus tent

WATCH: Baby christened in Truro circus tent

Published by Sarah Yeoman at 2:50pm 21st August 2018.

This isn't something that happens every day... but a baby has been christened inside a circus tent in Truro.

Little 11-month-old Luana was born into a circus family - which is currently touring Cornwall.

Friends and family gathered at Hendra Park where the Circus Funtasia is pitched up.

Her parents are working as the performance heads around the Duchy but wanted their daughter to still have her christening.

Dad Antonio Cardela said: "It's not something you see every day I'm sure but I think that is what makes it more special.

"This is our first time in Cornwall actually, and we love Cornwall so much we thought it would be a nice memory for us to have and for Luana to have her christened here.

"It's quite a tradition in the circus so we thought we would follow that tradition and do it."
