Musselburgh Fishermans Walk

Where: Formerly at Musselburgh, Lothian
When: Formerly 1st Saturday in September


Musselburgh was an important fishing centre and this heritage used to be celebrated every September with the Fishermens Walk. The Fish Callant and Fishwife led a parade through the streets, which were decorated with a seafood theme. The custom lapsed in the later years of the twentieth century but the townsfolk continue to remember their fishing heritage with a Harbour Ceremony as part of their Festival Week in July (see separate article).
