The Celebrate Aberdeen event is set to showcase all that is good about the Granite City this weekend.
Organised by the big-hearted volunteers behind the Celebrate Aberdeen Parade, in partnership with Aberdeen City Council, the event will build on the success of the parade, which saw more than 3,500 people from 130 different third-sector organisations come together on three occasions to highlight the exceptional work carried out by local charities.
This new event – sponsored by oil and natural gas operator CNR International – has the same ultimate aim as the parade: to unite people in a positive manner to celebrate the great people of Aberdeen.
Over the course of the weekend, a host of acts and community groups will perform within the city’s Union Terrace Gardens and Academy Shopping Centre courtyard, as well as on Denburn Viaduct, St Nicholas Deck and St Nicholas Street.
Among the performers at the event are the Sweet Adelines Barbershop choir, Dezibels street drummers, North East Clarsach Society and north-east wrestling organisation WrestleZone, while local comedy club Breakneck Comedy will also take part.
The Celebrate Aberdeen weekend will take place on Saturday, August 30, from 10am-3pm, and Sunday, August 31, from 11am-4pm, in venues across the city. For further information visit www.celebrateaberdeen.org or call 01224 439990.
