The 73rd Edinburgh Taxi Trade Children’s Outing is on today so watch out if you are on the pavement anywhere near them – they are armed with water pistols!
This is an outing organised and funded by taxi drivers and gives a day out for children with special needs, life-limiting conditions and terminal illnesses.
The taxis are all decorated with balloons or as floats and assembled at the car park at Edinburgh Zoo (behind the Holiday Inn) for judging and presentation of prizes for best float taxi, best balloon taxi, best fancy dressed driver and best fancy dressed child.
They left Edinburgh Zoo Car Park at 10.00am heading under Police escort (complete with balloons!) through the city and along the coast to Archerfield Walled Garden (between Gullane and Dirleton, East Lothian) for a fun-filled afternoon before heading home about 4.00pm.
We met them on the High Street
