SILENT BANG FOR FIREWORK DISPLAY
The Bank of Scotland Fireworks Concert is on 31 August 2008.
Special new silent fireworks are to be used in the huge fireworks display to mark the end of the Edinburgh International Festival.
In a first for Edinburgh, the bangless-fireworks will be timed to complement quieter passages of music at the Bank of Scotland Fireworks Concert.
The annual spectacular finale is on Sunday 31 August at 2100 BST.
The 45-minute-display includes 100,000 fireworks, four tonnes of explosives, and hundreds of firing sequences.
