A north-east town is to hold its annual bonfire and fireworks celebration this weekend.
Organised by Ellon Round Table, the free event takes place at Gordon Park in the town from 5.30pm tomorrow.
Group member George Stewart said: “It’s the eighth year of its revival. It disappeared for a long time but we brought it back.
“We’ve got a funfair carnival, barbecue, stovies, macaroni, pancakes and tea and coffee stalls.
“We’ll also be selling some light-up toys.”
There will be time for people to sample refreshments and take part in traditional fairground activities before the main event.
Volunteers will light the bonfire at around 6.30pm with fireworks following afterwards.
There will be no parking at the site, however as it is in the town centre, organisers said it should be within easy walking distance from around the area.
The event is funded entirely by donations, with money raised from the sale of refreshments and toys.
Any surplus funds made on the night will go towards local charities.
George added: “Inverurie unfortunately had to cancel their one this year so we’re hoping to see more people come down from that.
“It’s completely funded by donations – all the money goes towards this year’s funds.
“Any surplus goes to local charities, there’s a couple of groups that have us on their calendar like football teams, the men’s shed, rotary, scouts and more.
“They help us out with stewarding events and serving the food. We can never have too many helpers.
“We’ve got a couple of hundred metres around the bonfire which we need marshals for.”
Last year’s bonfire reached a towering 20 feet with more than 3,000 people coming along to join the fun.
Wood for the blaze comes via donations from local businesses and includes everything from bits of wooden furniture to surplus pallets.

Ellon Round Table group is also looking for men aged between 18 and 25 to join and help to organise future activities.
After the bonfire and fireworks display, there will be more events organised by them all through the festive period.
These will include selling Christmas trees and Santa’s sleigh going around the town picking up gifts to donate to Cash For Kids.
George added: “We’re always looking for people to get involved.
“We’re a social club as well, it’s not just about organising events.”
Met Office forecasters said there was a chance light showers could hit the event, with temperatures expected to drop as low as 4C.
