Organisers of this year's St Piran's Day parade in Truro are looking for more people to get involved. They're hoping to build on the success of last year's Pirantide celebration which was one of the biggest and most vibrant to date,.

In 2012, members of local societies and clubs joined with children from local schools in processing through Truro. The parade culminated in a celebration of Cornish culture outside the cathedral. 

A number of shops in the city centre also joined in the festivities by decorating their windows with a Cornish theme.

This year the parade's organisers would like to build on the momentum from last year and get even more people to take part.

Parade co-ordinator Elizabeth Stewart said: "We'd like to increase community engagement in the parade and give the people of Truro a greater sense of ownership of the event"

"We're looking for people to take part in the parade itself, people to man traffic signs and help steward the participants, and people to assist in organising specific aspects of the parade in future years."

The 2013 Truro St Piran's Day parade will take place on Tuesday 5th March, leaving the Waterfall Gardens off St George's Road at 1.15pm and finishing at High Cross with performances by local schools.

If you would like to get involved in any aspect of the parade e-mail stpiransdaytruro@gmail.com
