The Edinburgh Fringe has well and truly started **cue swarms of tourists, alfresco bars and more leaflets being shoved in your face than you can even hold** and what better way to celebrate its beginning than going to a food festival in one of the many Edinburgh parks.
It was such a fun day out even though we were dealing with classic Scottish weather – torrential rain for 5 minutes then glorious sunshine for 5 minutes and so on. But we are Scottish, we deal with it.
There were hundreds of food trucks with all the food you could ever wants plus bars selling some delicious cocktails. There was also a section at the back which had stalls selling items that you could take home like cake, chutneys and there was also a pet stall. Obviously I had to buy my dog some doggy chocolate chip cookies and doggy prosecco.
For lunch we got burgers ft. a strawberry cocktail. And then a maltese brownie for desert.
It was a really fun, really relaxing day out. We stayed for about 6 hours, just relaxing, nattering away and drinking and eating copious amounts. It was lush. There was a live band who were playing some great tunes aswell.
TOP TIP #1: if you are going then bring a blanket or a rug or something to sit on because there is very limited seating. And theres nothing nicer than having a drink in the sun whilst sitting gone a picnic blanket.
TOP TIP #2: Wear sensible shoes. I for one wore sliders and it was the worst decision. there was mud EVERYWHERE.
