Giraffe Man

There are quite a few children's show on at Edinburgh and this man and his giraffe costume were in one of them about saving endangered animals.

Lots of posters

The number of posters shows how much entertainment is on at the festival. The pole was about 3m high and 2m around and was covered from top to bottom!

Tea in the street

Check out this strange sight! To get people to come and see their show these two were having a tea party in the street.


There are also lots of dance shows on at the festival and these two were showing some of their tango moves on the street. Great footwork!
