Obby Oss Celebrations

Padstow welcomes in the spring.
Hundreds of people will pack into the town for its Obby Oss festival on Wednesday.
Locals will dance through the streets with the Blue and Red Oss to celebrate May Day.
Larissa grew up in the port and says it brings the community together: "I think it's all in the words really. Obviously the May song goes 'Unite and Unite' and that's what everyone in Padstow does do on the day."
Friend Jordan says: "Everyone's together and it's just nice to see everyone as well. You can say hello and everyone's happy.
"I think the best bit's probably leading up to the music coming out. We're both in Old Oss so the music's coming out of the Golden Lion. We're always there with our grans. We're like the May Day three musketeers."
Terry Rogers has been a part of Obby Oss for 60 years, and said it brought locals back together from across the world.
Terry told Pirate FM old rivalries get put to one side: "With two osses in the town, there's been that little difference of opinion. But it's true, something that's happened years ago, there's a good atmosphere. Good friendly atmosphere, no problems at all."
