August Round-up: Edinburgh Festival Fringe

The Edinburgh Fringe, the world’s largest arts festival based right here in Scotland’s capital, is finally over after a crazy month of comedy, music, dance, theatre, spoken word and so much more. For me, August was organized chaos, living with 3 performers, becoming my boyfriend’s unofficial roadie, and jumping from show to show, but I have compiled a list of my very best moments of the festival, so in no particular order, here we go!
