Edinburgh Military Tattoo

Over the next week or so, I'll try and give you a flavour of all the various festivals that are happening in the city at the moment. As well as the Fringe which started last week, the International Festival kicks off this weekend, as do the Edinburgh Book Festival and the Film Festival. The Military Tattoo is always one of the most popular events during August. Performers are invited from all over the world and it truly is a spectacular evening's entertainment, all performed to the backdrop of a floodlit castle...fantastic!

Thanks- the Edinburgh tattoo is an event that has been talked about in my family since I was a child. I would love to see more photos.

I love this photo!
Seattle is also one big festival all summer long--usually two or three festivals every weekend in different neighborhoods. I guess because Edinburgh and Seattle can be so gloomy at other times of the year, we make the most of high summer! Wishing you continued sunny festive days,

Edinburgh (and Seattle too) has quite a variety of festivals. Our festivals are in the spring and fall (not so hot) but don't have the same interesting range as your's do in Edinburgh.

Seattle is another city on my list of places to go...any tips on what festivals are best?
