The 66th Edinburgh Taxi Trade Outing for Children with Special Needs took place today. This outing is organised and paid for by the Organising Committee through fund-raising along with the generosity and support from residents and businesses within Edinburgh and beyond and takes over 250 people on an day out to the beach.
We managed to see the parade come down the Royal Mile which was quite a sight to see and noise to hear. The children were squirting passers-by with water and our camera got wet on more than one occasion!
Here’s a few snaps of the procession driving down the Royal Mile.
After driving down the Royal Mile, the parade heads to Musselburgh where the kids stopped off for as much ice cream as they could eat at the world-famous Lucas.
The parade then went onto Yellowcraigs where there was a BBQ, ponies, bouncy castle, face painting and a magician.
This is the only procession in the world where the participants can soak every Police officer, traffic warden and parking attendant on route without punishment!
Looks like a fun day out to us.
