Truro came alive with dancing, music and brightly coloured costumes this evening as the city's carnival made its way through the streets.
Truro Carnival is a celebration of the city's rich cultural heritage, vibrant dance and music groups, thriving commercial sector and tireless charitable and voluntary organisations.
Thousands of spectators were expected to line the carnival route today and the sun shone down as the procession of floats, vehicles and marchers made its way through the streets.
The route itself had been altered slightly this year, a decision made by the carnival committee to try and keep as much of the city centre open as possible during the event.
Judging of the floats, walking groups and vintage vehicles took place on Hendra Field at 4.30pm. The carnival procession then wound through the city ending on Lemon Quay where the music and entertainment, along with food and drink stalls, will continue until 10pm.
