Thousands of people are expected to line the streets this weekend for the Armed Forces Day parade.
A number of road closures will be put in place in the city centre for the event on Saturday.
Those taking part in the march will include serving military personnel, veterans and young cadet groups and pipe bands.
Starting at 11am, the parade will make its way along Union Street, finishing at the Castlegate.
Lord Lieutenant of Aberdeen Barney Crockett said: “We are very proud to be able to honour our armed forces, past and present, for their service to our country by holding a parade in the city centre.
“We hope lots of people will come along and show their support by lining the length of Union Street. It’s also a great day out for families with military vehicles, massed pipes and drums and all the military uniforms on show.
“We’d encourage everyone to come along.”
A number of traffic diversions will be in place for the parade.
Albyn Place will be closed from its junction with Albyn Grove and Victoria Street from 9am until 11.30am.
Alford Place will also be closed at the same time at its junction with Victoria Street and Union Street.
During the parade, between 10.45am and 12.30pm, right turn bans will be in place from King Street into West North Street; Rosemount Viaduct into Skene Street and Holburn Street into Willowbank Road.
Drivers will also be stopped from turning left from Hadden Street into Market Street, with the one-way restriction on Exchequer Row and Shiprow being suspended.
A number of roads will also be closed or have a partial closure between 10.45am and 12.30pm on Saturday. These include Union Street, Back Wynd, Castle Street, King Street and Chapel Street.
A number of parking restrictions will be put in place in the city centre – including a ban on stopping on Albyn Place from 6pm Friday until noon on Saturday. A temporary taxi rank will also be set up at Schoolhill from 10am until 1pm.
