Helston is perhaps most famous for the Floral Dance held on the 8th May, unless this falls on a Sunday or Monday when it takes place on the preceding Saturday). On Flora Day the streets are thronged with thousands of visitors and there’s a carnival atmosphere all day and into the night. At 7.00am and again at 8.30am there is the Hal-an-Tow, in which St George and St Michael slay the Dragon and the Devil, cheered on by a crowd in Elizabethan dress. The children’s dance is at 10.00am. At midday is the main dance, with participants dressed in top hats, tails and ball gowns. The final dance is at 5.00pm. Throughout the day, dancers weave in and out of shops, houses and gardens following the Town Band playing the famous Floral Dance.
