Cornwall Respect Festival

Yesterday I was wandering around Truro with some friends when we heard some music in the distance, we went to investigate and discovered it was the parade for the Cornwall Respect Festival:

There were a complete mix of people marching and banging drums.

This is what the respect festival is about:

The aim of our festival is to celebrate the many diverse cultures and beliefs in our county. Our hope is that this will become an annual event for the future.
We invite you to join us in our celebration, and say
No to Racism, hatred, bigotry, and segregation and
Yes to love, understanding, and acceptance.

I can go along with that, so we followed the parade to Lemon Quay:

It was a really happy time. The evening continued with a free concert on Lemon Quay.

Davina & I went along at about 8 o'clock. I enjoyed Ackee and Saltfish with Rice & Peas, whilst listening to Kissmet:

It was the conclusion of another amazing day in Cornwall.

The first three pictures were taken by my friend Carla. Thanks
