It's St. Andrew's Day once again in Edinburgh
And if you're on vacation with a troop of kids in tow, don't worry as the programme listings are by and large family-friendly, as stressed by Scotland.org. Your first port of call if you have brought your children along for the ride should be the festival in St Andrew Square Gardens, which features cookery demonstrations, live music, dancing and a host of interactive activities that should keep everyone's attention absorbed.
If you're a bit more free and easy, doing the rounds might be a good idea as the party's only on between November 28th and 30th and there's no chance you'll see all you want to unless you get your stomp on. There's a screening of the best of Scottish film at the Filmhouse, the Ceilidh at the Hub and the presentation of the Pipes & Drums along the Royal Mile. And everyone loves fireworks so make sure you're at the castle for the Homecoming Scotland Finale Celebrations to see the sky light up.
And if you're still not convinced, let culture minister Mike Russell's words work their magic. He told the BBC News that "this year's celebrations will be the biggest and best yet".
