Obby Oss

Today is the Obby Oss celebration of May day in Padstow.

We went a couple of years ago, and it was great fun. I was trying to look out some pictures of it, but found a load of our wedding and honeymoon ones instead. (Which was quite nice and nostalgic, and a little bit sad). The Obby Oss, or rather the two, parade around the town from one pub as starting point to another, in opposite directions with followers in white and music.

The Osses aren't like sticks with a horse-shaped head, they're an altogether different kind of beast...
