May Day (or ‘Obby ‘Oss Day as it is known) is the biggest day in Padstow’s calendar.

Locals spend the night decorating the town’s streets with flags, flowers and greenery complete with a maypole and the following morning two “osses”, one red and one blue emerge from their stables. The “osses” proceed through Padstow’s streets taunted by a Teazer, who leads the dance with theatrical movements.

It’s such a fun day, if you’re staying at Wooda this is a great day out!
