The recent Festival Carnival which marked the start of the festival season, was according to Car Hire Edinburgh Airport the perfect way to start the season, with many nations involved.
The streets of Edinburgh were lined with thousands of people to see the Edinburgh Festival Carnival. The parade was led by carnival favourites Kalentura from the Netherlands, featured over one hundred live drummers, 200 international musicians and 150 circus performers.
Those taking part were drawn from 17 different countries including South Africa, Zambia, the Bahamas, Italy, Germany, Colombia, Costa Rica as well as Scottish and UK acts.
The very colourful procession marched from the Mound to the West End of Princess Street. Now in its third year, the Festival Carnival has become the key event in the launch of Summer Festival Season.
