So, that’s it..with the sound of the festival fireworks banging and sparkling away over the top of the castle last night, the 2017 festival has come to an end….and it’s been such a fantastic year. I have LOVED it – we enjoyed all the circus on the meadows, the brilliant kids shows, the BBC tent activities and of course the rather delicious hot donut stall in George square gardens (please let that come back next year) !!!
But, don’t despair, there is still plenty going on and in fact this weekend is packed with a plethora of events and lots more festival fun to be had !! Including Gorgie City Farm Festival, this Saturday the 2nd (more on that in a post tomorrow), the Tea in the Park event at Braidburn Valley Park, also on Saturday 2nd from 2pm which includes duck racing, music and new for this year a dog show too !!!
And of course, the fabulous Edinburgh Mela Festival has returned !!! I’ll be writing a blog post about it later in the week, but it will be on this weekend, 2nd and 3rd September on Leith Links and will include the Mela kids zone too !!
