The Beltane Fire Festival is held every year during the night of 30th April on Calton Hill in Edinburgh. An audience of around 15 thousand people come to share the two hour procession and wild after-events. Justifiably famous for its intensity and colour, the event has become a much-loved feature of the Edinburgh calendar since it was first organised in the mid 1980s.



so who's all gonna be there??

Posted:yippee, what a rockin Festival the Beltane/tePOOKa kids put on! thanks everybody who i met, you all rock!!!!!

anyhoo lots of Beltane goodness captured on cam, the first batch of pics is here:
http://www.pbase.com/glenneroo/2006_beltane
br>
all 300 Festival pics are zipped and in higher quality here:
http://public.glenneroo.org/?path=img/Beltane2006/
br>
to download: right-click then "Save As"
to open: double-click and windows should take care of the rest smile

i took about 10,000 pics actually, not including 7k worth of time-lapse which are also coming soon... so expect an update relatively soon.

if anybody wants the ORIGINAL in SUPER DUPER HIGH QUALITY, just email me wot pics you want and i'll get em to you! Normally i'd ZIP those up too, but seeing as the pics total about 2GB its not quite feasible.
