Festival Fever

August + Edinburgh = almost better than Christmas. Comedy, dance, colour and hundreds of thousands of people make the journey to Edinburgh for the magical month of August. Visitors and locals alike embrace the festival spirit come rain or shine and enjoy a few chuckles over a beer or two. Every way you look there are pop up comedy stands, bars keeping the spectators hydrated and a array of tropical smells ranging from sweet Thai scents to snapping lobsters. With the cities population doubling during the month of August, you have to be prepared for the fact that you are not going to arrive anywhere fast. The high street is bustling with people and the pavements are overflowing: much to the Lothian Bus drivers dismay. Whether the sun is shining or hiding behind a a big grizzly cloud, Edinburgh is a bright bustling place for the month of August. You are just going to need to rob your piggy bank to enjoy it.
