Locals Celebrate St. Piran's Day In Perranporth


    Crowds gather to watch the annual processional play to celebrate St. Piran, patron saint of tinners and regarded by many as Cornwalls premier saint, on March 4, 2012 in Perranporth, England. Held on the nearest Sunday to St. Pirans Day, which this year is Monday March 5th, the play produced by the St. Piran Trust, takes place in sand dunes close to Perranporth, where according to legend the revered saint was washed up on millstone from Ireland in the 5th century AD. The play – which crosses the dunes to St. Pirans Cross and St Pirans Oratory, thought to be the oldest Christian building on mainland Britain and the site where St. Piran built his first place of worship around 1,400 year ago – is usually watched by hundreds of people generally dressed in the black, white and gold colours of Cornwall and carrying the Cornish Flag.
