Padstow also has a renowned folk festival the Obby Oss celebrations each May 1st with parades throughout the day around the town decorated in flowers. In total, there are 3 Oss, the Childrens, the Red, Old Oss and the New Blue Ribbon Oss and there is a friendly rivalry between the 2 adult ones, with the Padstow folk wearing the colours of the Oss they support. The Oss wear a distinctive costume and spin and run through the crowded streets, baited and followed by the people who sing the traditional song accompanied by drums and piano accordions.
Padstow is a delightful place to stay and a must to visit.
