All fired up for 2018

Strathearn Herald - - COMRIE FLAMBEAUX -

The Shaky Vil­lage ush­ered in the New Year in its usual big way with the Com­rie Flam­beaux, one of Scot­land’s old­est fire cer­e­monies.

As the bells rang out to wel­come in the new year, 12 ten­foot torches were lit at the top of Melville Square, which was packed with Hog­manay rev­ellers.

The flam­beaux pa­rade was led by Com­rie Pipe Band and this year there was a good turnout of guis­ers and small floats.

Tra­di­tion Flam­beaux bear­ers set off on the an­cient rit­ual of walk­ing to the bound­aries of the vil­lage as the bells ring in the new year
