Artists from two coastal towns in the north-east have linked up to offer a packed weekend of activities.
Crafters from Banff and Macduff are hoping for a huge turnout as they prepare to launch their Coastal Fringe Festival for the second year tomorrow.
The event had previously run for nine years under the Coast Festival banner before the group stopped running projects in late 2015.
The new-look group has now organised more than a dozen different events over 10 venues between the two communities for this weekend.
And last night, a spokeswoman said 8,000 leaflets detailing all of the events had been printed to allow for tourists and locals alike to pick and choose which they go to.
She said: “Many organisations have come together to each hold an event over the weekend at 10 different venues, meaning that there will be so much for every visitor to see and do and take part in it will be a challenge to get round all the events.
“Seven thousand leaflets about all the events have been distributed around Aberdeenshire and beyond, with another 1,000 at the venues awaiting visitors that haven’t come across one yet.
“There are really large events taking place on both days at Banff Castle, with literally dozens of contributors of art and photographic displays.”
Alongside the artistic efforts of the communities, activities for children, beer tasting and even a vintage fair has been organised.
The event will also coincide with other celebrations in the area.
“Banff Harbour has its 10th anniversary gala on the Saturday, and Banff Rotary have their annual cycle challenge on Sunday,” the spokeswoman added.
Boat rides, heritage walks and games have also been organised in the towns.
The Coast Fringe Festival will run between Saturday morning and Sunday evening in the area.
