Newquay’s annual carnival was a big hit on Saturday 12th July, with the biggest turnout ever for the mascot race and colourful procession.
For the start of the race, Funky Monkey lined up on the start line with his fellow mascots, including Daisy the Cow from Dairyland and Henry the Hippo from Hendra Holidays, ready to put on a show for the gathered crowds.
The competitors didn’t disappoint, putting on a thrilling race through the streets of Newquay to the cheers of spectators, businesses and supporters.
Funky finished a respectable fourth, and is now on a strict regime of ice baths and intensive sports massage to help his body recover from the event.
Roll on 2015!
