We’ve invited sports groups to take part in this year’s parade, as well as the charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups. Our intention going forward is to start promoting some of the sports clubs and teams in the city – and the parade forms part of that effort.
The fact that the inaugural Great Aberdeen Run is also happening ties everything together nicely. Which familiar parts of the weekend can we also look forward to?
So it would great to get the support of the general public.
Then I’d suggest taking a walk through town and listening to the various performances, stopping off in Union Terrace Gardens for some tasty food and a fine cup of coffee.

We stopped founder Morven Mackenzie in her (rather fast) tracks to get her perspective on the weekend to come…
Can we expect anything new and special from Celebrate Aberdeen 2017?
