Glasgow to hold Olympic Games victory parade
Thursday 16 August 2012
The official victory parade for Scotland's Olympians will be held in Glasgow on Friday 14 September, though Edinburgh's Lord Provost, Donald Wilson, said he was "disappointed" it would not be held in the Scottish capital.
SportScotland said the event would be a "fitting and appropriate celebration" for all Scottish Olympians and Paralympians. Scottish athletes won a record 13 Olympic medals at the Games, including the two golds for Sir Chris Hoy which made him Britain's most successful Olympian.
