Aberdeen City Council has urged spectators to take advantage of public transport and also Park and Ride services from Bridge of Don, Kingswells and Souter Head Road, near the Aberdeen Altens Hotel.
More than 12,000 people are expected to attend the free annual event, and the road closures will make sure everyone can enter, watch and leave the Queen’s Links area safely.
Lord Provost Barney Crockett urged people to show up to the popular event in the city calendar.
He said: “It’s a great event for everybody in the city.
“We always give it a huge amount of support and I’m sure the people of Aberdeen will be very pleased to come and look at the tremendous display.
“The possibility of a park and ride will help everyone have a good time and I think there will be a huge turn out.”
The best vantage points for the display are around the Beach Boulevard, Queen’s Links and Esplanade areas.
