Helston’s carnival takes place every September as part of the town’s Harvest Fair Celebrations leading up the the horticultural and craft show. It is an important tradition that has been growing in size over the last few years.
There are 10 different classes, with each class winner winning a trophy, and cash prize kindly donated by Flambards!
