There will be about a five minute firework display above the castle just about midnight on the 25th as that signals the ending of that performance and also the end of the 2007 Military Tattoo. The exact time the fireworks go off will be hard to predict as it depends on the timing of the last Tattoo performance. I would think that unless you are at the Tattoo you would have to be in the likes of Johnston Terrace- beside the castle to get an idea as to when the fireworks will start. There you can see the spotlight on the Lone Piper - high up on the Castle and that generally signals that that performance is coming to an end. You will then hear the massed Pipes and drums and thereafter the fireworks start.

There is nothing significant happening to end the Fringe Festival.

The big firework display is Sunday 2nd September and that lasts for about an hour.

Good Luck for your plans.
