A performer with the Hal-an-Tow pageant takes part in a performance as part of the Helston Flora Day celebrations in Cornwall, England, on Wednesday. The annual Flora Dance, also known as the Furry Dance, is one of the UK’s oldest customs that is still practised and is said to be a celebration of the passing of winter and the arrival of spring. A series of dances take place throughout the day, beginning at 7am, all over the Cornish town and even in and out of private houses and shops.
