One of the biggest street parties in the world!

The festivities for Hogmanay or New Year's Eve in Edinburgh are eagerly awaited by the thousands of people who attend each year. There is plenty to see and do over the New Year period, and spirits are high, despite the cold temperatures.
Edinburgh's Hogmanay festivities kick off with a torchlight procession in the streets of the Old Town. On the evening of the 31st December a major open air concert will take place in West Princes Street Gardens with many well known singers and bands appearing on the line up at this prestigious event. Finally a giant street party takes place and a fantastic firework display from the Castle will see in the New Year with style.
