Granite City third sector organisations, voluntary groups, social enterprises, sports groups and musicians have been urged to sign up for this year’s Celebrate Aberdeen Union Street parade.
The groups have been invited to take part in the event, which will be held on Saturday, August 24.
More than 170 organisations took part last year and organisers would like to sign up as many as possible again when parade registration opens on Friday, February 8.
The parade was first held in 2011 and has brought together more than 3,500 people each year that it has been held.
Morven Mackenzie, the leading force behind Celebrate Aberdeen, said: “Preparations have begun for this year’s event which we hope will build on the success of previous years. The city has so many third sector organisations, which provide first-rate services and it’s important that we recognise them.
“Celebrate Aberdeen is a great opportunity to shine a light on the work they do, and we need as many third sector and sports groups as possible to sign up to take part in the parade.
“With the event being held on the same weekend as the Great Aberdeen Run again this year the whole weekend is guaranteed to be entertaining and informative. I would encourage all third sector organisations to sign up to take part as soon as possible.”
Plans are also underway for additional musical activities and performances to take place throughout the weekend.
