The procession started outside Burns Cottage in Alloway and followed behind Tam O'Shanter. The statue was stopped under each Bridge of flowers over the road - the bridges then lit up and the statue was turned so everyone got a good view of it.
The lights on the three bridges said "Tam O'Shanter", "Homecoming 2009" and "Auld Lang Syne". Sadly there was no massed singing of Auld Lang Syne as had been 'promised' in the initial advertising. In fact, the initial advertising for the event was not very accurate at all - but it was a great event, well worth going to.
