Edinburgh is widely recognised as being one of the best venues for festivals and all kinds of other celebrations across the UK, and the city is now preparing to add yet another spectacular public event to its already jam-packed calendar.
The Edinburgh Festival Carnival is set to take place for the very first time this summer, with the Scottish capital getting ready to welcome exotic performers from around the world for an exciting parade on the 22nd July.
It is estimated that around 30,000 people will take to the streets to join in with the festivities, which will include performances from a wide range of troupes, including the New Orleans-based Stooges Brass Band, the Allyson Velez Drummers and Dancers hailing from Brazil, and a reggae-samba outfit from closer to home in Liverpool.
To experience what is sure to be an unforgettable spectacle for yourself, why not book into one of the many quality hotels in Edinburgh
later this month and take a trip to one of the UK`s most vibrant cities?
