We'll see you again in 2014!
And that's a wrap! The Edinburgh Festival 2013 is over... concluded by the traditional, spectacular fireworks display over Edinburgh Castle.
The 45-minute extravaganza - this time themed around Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition - wowed the crowds in the city centre for yet another breathtaking year. High winds couldn't stop the sign-off event, which lit up the castle and Princes Street with a barrage of pyrotechnics and the famous "waterfall of fire".
It was a fitting finale to another mammoth Festival. The Edinburgh Fringe alone saw 2,871 shows and events, performed 45,464 times at 273 venues - all over a mad, mind-blowing four-week run. With ticket sales up 5% on last year, almost 2 million seats were filled at Edinburgh Fringe shows.
We at FringeGuru have a few last reviews to publish, coming over the next couple of days, and we'll be back soon to keep you in touch with plans for Festival 2014. In the meantime, we hope you enjoyed the summer as much as we did - and we'll see you in Edinburgh next August!
