Stonehaven 2012 Hogmanay Event
Stonehaven, a small coastal town, 15 miles south of Aberdeen is planning it's biggest ever event at Hogmanay 2012.
Already famous for its Fireball Festival a unique event which draws crowds of 8 - 10,000 and attracts interest from all over the world.
From 2000 to 2010 an other event called Open Air in the Square also took place which involve funfair activities for the children and musicians on stage etc and this attracted another couple of thousand people.
In 2011 there was no Open Air in the Square due to lack of volunteers to help to organise it.
This was missed in the town, so local hotel owner Michelle Ward siezed the opportunity to do something about it, which should result in Stonehaven's biggest ever event
Already booked to headline this event are The Red Hot Chilli Pipers.

From 2pm to 6pm on Hogmanay there will be street dances, storytellers, The Lindsay School Dancers and Blazin Fiddles.
There will be a large screen to show the Fireballs live on Hogmanay and there will be plenty footage to promote Stonehaven and the local businesses.
Car parks will be open at Carlton House, Queens Road, Mackie Academy, Railway Station, Forest View, Mill O' Forest School and Carronhill School but if at all possible you should avoid taking your car to the event
