The famous New Year celebrations at Princess Street Gardens in Edinburgh is called Hogmanay Celebrations. The three-day-long festivities call for many activities including street dancing, fireworks, music concerts, etc. Some even have a rather daredevil New Years by taking a dip in the chilly waters of the River Forth.
