Edinburgh Festivals 2011 have begun

Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Art Festival started yesterday (5th August 2011).

Despite some light rain, Royal Mile was crowded, as usual during the first weekend of Fringe. Both locals and tourists are drawn to watch street performers and also artists who are listed in the programme but are giving ‘tasters’ of their shows in the street. The first thing we were handed, while waiting at the crossroad for the lights to change, was a booklet with all the free shows arranged according to the hour.

The thing about Fringe is, even if you don’t have much money, you can have fun here in Edinburgh.
