The annual Melrose Hogmanay fireworks display started as a one-off event to celebrate the millenium in 2000 but proved such a hit that the fireworks, music from Melrose Pipe Band and traditional dancing in the street returned year-upon-year until the event proved too much for organisers Melrose Community Council in 2017, forcing its cancellation.
