Padstow welcomes in the spring.

The town is celebrating its Obby Oss festival.

Hundreds will dance and parade through the streets with the Blue and Red Oss later, to mark May Day.

John Buckingham is chairman of the Museum and says, "Most people who know Padstow, who've lived here, share it as part of our heritage. It's been going for so long that nobody really knows the precise origins, which is quite nice".
