Planning a special celebration to ring in 2012? Count down to the new year at the world- renowned H ogmanay between 30 Dec-1 Jan, with its spectacular events and incredible festive atmosphere amongst crowds from around the world.
Kick off this special year-end weekend with the thousands gathering to form a ‘river of fire’ at the Torchlight Procession on Friday, 30 Dec.
Follow this with an exhilarating Saturday dancing the night away twirling with newfound friends in The Keilidh or rocking into the night with Concert in the Gardens, where Scottish band Primal Scream headlines this year, before joining the massive Hogmanay street party. Then start the new year on Sunday 1 Jan participating or just watching the fun-filled challenge of Looney Dook: dress up in outrageous outfits and throw yourself into the bone-chilling waters at the Firth of Forth at South Queensferry, just a few miles out of the Scottish capital.
