A big Robert Burns celebration for his 250 year anniversary took place this afternoon in Dumfries.There was music and paper lanterns with three huge processions along the river arriving in time for the fire sculpture and lone piper. As I was both singing Burns songs with the 'Feral Choir', as well as playing drums with the 'Samba Sisters', I had a great day. Here is a photo of 'The Tam o'Shanter' willow fire sculpture, with the 'deil' hanging onto it's tail. Trevor Leat made this - too good to burn, but it did look spectacular as it went off.
....and a moose or two. Sorry, I never got any shots after dusk when it all came together but it gives a feel of the event.
