Hogmanay is one hell of an outdoor street festival where tens of thousands of people from around the world converge on Edinburgh, Scotland to drunkenly ring in the new year.
The festival takes place along Princes Street in front of the Edinburgh Castle where there is drinking, musical performances, drinking, food, drinking, and carnival rides. Did I mention, there was drinking?
The festival starts on New Year’s Eve around 19:00 and rages until the culmination of the night’s events – fireworks to ring in the new year. The fireworks are shot skyward from the Edinburgh Castle with music and lights to ring in the new year.
