The event includes a number of processions where musicians and bands lead members of the community who often carry large willow sculptures and images made especially for the day. Willow is a flexible kind of wood that can easily be bent into a number of shapes. These sculptures are covered in paper and glue before being painted. The images change each year to represent the theme of the festival, which is especially chosen by the organisers.
There are also two music stages in the town, where a wide variety of music is performed. One of the most interesting places in St Just is the Plain-an-Gwarry. A plain-an-gwarry (or plen-an-gwarry), which translates to “playing place” in English, is a community space once used to stage plays and other entertainment. The most famous of these plays were the religious stories called “miracle plays”. On Lafrowda Day the Plain-an-Gwarry is used for entertainment for children. Throughout the town there are stalls and places to buy food.
