Default Hogmanay in Edinburgh, Scotland

The centerpiece will be the famous street party in Princes Street, attended by up to 80,000 people from over 55 countries.


At Edinburgh Castle, high above the street, 20 tonnes of fireworks will be used in four separate displays up to, and including, the midnight hour.


Quote:
Event organiser Pete Irvine told Sky News: "We are still, and will continue to be, the biggest and best street party in the world.
"It's as big as it ever was and we have amazing fireworks at 9pm, 10pm, 11pm and midnight.
"That, as well as fifteen acts performing on five different stages. It is, in every sense, a big party."

Ditto. I took part in the Parade of Clans up the Royal Mile at The Gathering in 2009. Someday, I'll be there for Hogmanay.

I stayed home last night, I live about 30 minutes away. But, the weather was great compared to London and in years past. Hogmanay is getting better each year. The Arts Festival in August is spectacular if you can go to that. It goes on for weeks with acts from all over the world.

Did anyone see the fireworks display in London last night? It was awesome.
