Bill Welcomes the Edinburgh Taxi Outing Outside the Scottish Parliament

Every year on the second Tuesday in June, Edinburgh's taxi drivers treat some very special children to a day at the seaside. This year (2016) marks the 70th anniversary of the Edinburgh Taxi Outing. This year's taxis included a wide arrange of decorations and characters, including the Minions from Pixar's "Despicable Me" movies, Light Buzzyear from Disney's "Toy Story", Chewbacca from "Star Wars", and other fun characters. The children, parents, and drivers were armed with water guns and other water toys. 

Bill welcomed the taxis outside the Scottish Parliament as they drove past, and quickly became the victim of a particularly powerful water canon. 

Regarding the Edinburgh Taxi Outing, Bill says: "It is a wonderful and fun tradition that brings joy to participants and witnesses alike. I applaud the drivers for their care and creativity, and hope all participants - children and parents - enjoy this special occasion."
