Two busy roads will close from next month to make way for Aberdeen Christmas Village.
Broad Street, which is usually open to buses and bikes, will be temporarily closed from 5am on November 12 until 11.30pm on January 6.
Upperkirkgate will close between its junctions with Gallowgate and Flourmill Lane from 6pm on November 16 until 11.30pm on January 6.
There will also be parking restrictions on Broad Street between its junctions with Union Street and Queen Street from November 12 until January 6.
Other city centre streets including Blackfriars Street, St Andrew Street, Netherkirkgate and Schoolhill will also have restrictions.
As previously revealed by the Evening Express, Aberdeen’s Christmas Village will double in size this winter, extending along Upperkirkgate for the first time.
A Santa Express train, slingshot bungee jump ride and Santa’s grotto are among new attractions at the village, which organisers claim will be “bigger and better” than before.
Arranged by Aberdeen Inspired, Aberdeen City Council and Codona’s, it will return to the city on November 22 and run until Hogmanay.
Other new rides include candy cane bungee trampolines for children, spinning bumper cars and the freak-out ride.
Old favourites like the carousel and helter-skelter will also return.
Adrian Watson, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired, said: “There is going to be a fantastic festive atmosphere as the Aberdeen Christmas Village returns to Broad Street.
“The event has grown since it was first established and we can’t wait to bring it back this year.
“Road closures are an essential part of this and we would encourage the public to plan ahead for their journeys and utilise available transport options.
“This is also a great opportunity to benefit from Alive After Five, which offers free parking in council car parks from 5pm, and enjoy everything the city centre has to offer this Christmas.
“We would like to thank the public for their patience and look forward to welcoming visitors to their very own winter wonderland.”
