Edinburgh: Torchlight procession

Fireworks as seen from North Bridge, Edinburgh.

 

Part of the 2013 Hogmanay celebrations, the torch parade was a family event. Thousands of torch bearers paraded down the Mound and along Princes Street before ascending Calton Hill where there was a fireworks finale.

 

By 2019 the event had changed due to the much larger number of folk wanting to take part. It is now fully ticketed, has three starting points and finishes at Holyrood Park.
