Golowan Festival, Penzance
Golowan was one of the last mid-Summer Festivals practiced in Cornwall.
In the 1890s, the Penzance government outlawed the Festival due to the rising insurance premiums for the towns business community. Traditionally blazing tar barrels had been paraded around the town's streets and the surrounding hills had bonfires set at the top, which were seen all around Mounts Bay and beyond.
