“Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

You are so close you can feel the heat and smell the fuel used to light the balls. What is very surprising is that some of the balls are *huge* - others not so - but the twirlers *twirl* those balls all the way round their heads

“You have to see it at least once!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

The only place that this or a similar ceremony takes place anywhere on the UK mainland and makes for a completely different way to see in the New Year. the town has built a whole parcel of events around the fireball procession, but come early because parking is a nightmare and its a long walk if you have small children in tow.

Unless you live close by, it's only worth doing once, but you should do it once if you have the opportunity!

What a magical evening, great entertainment in the village followed by superb fireball display. Only down side trying to get a taxi back to Aberdeen
