Children's Day 2019

Truro BID hosted its third Children’s Fun Day on Saturday 13 April 2019 with over 35 shops, cafés and eateries offering fun, activities ranging from Easter egg hunts to face painting as well as offers. Hundreds of families took advantage of the free offers and activities doted around the city centre.

Lemon Quay was a hive of activity with stalls, kids rides, a diablo performer and a stilt walker, have-a-go sessions from Cornwall Dance School, InspirAsian Dance and Kids Yoga Cornwall and mountain bike athlete Andrei Burton. There were also some street performers popping-up around Truro on the day and the Royal Cornwall Museum was free entry for families.

The city’s new bright bunting was fluttering across Truro and adding colour to the day. The bunting, which is installed by Truro BID, included Boscawen Street in 2019 thanks to the sponsorship from town crier Lionel Knight and his partner Carol Bane.

Thank you to everyone who participated and came along. For the photos, check out the Children's Day album on our Facebook page!
