Torchlight Procession The torchlight Procession is a warm-up for the Hogmanay, starting the New Year celebrations in Edinburgh on December 29th at 6.30pm. It is a march of 12,000 people carrying flaming torches and creating the illusion of a river of fire flowing through Edinburgh city centre.
Night Afore International The festivals of the Night Afore International are set to bring everyone in the mood for the next night’s New Year celebrations. The Night Afore consists of a street theatre, Scottish dancing, music, bagpipes.
Hogmanay Street Party The Hogmanay Street Party is the main attraction of Scotland’s New Year celebrations. It takes place in Edinburgh City Centre with nearly 100,000 people dancing. The most memorable moment of a Hogmanay Party are the first minutes of the New Year. People start hugging and kissing each other, it doesn’t matter if you know somebody or not. The crowd sings Auld Lang Syne, the traditional New Year song.
