Work has started on Aberdeen’s Christmas Village.
The festive zone will again be built on Broad Street and Upperkirkgate.
Crews have closed off the shared space outside Marischal College and have begun construction in the area.
The opening of this year’s village will take place on November 21 and coincides with the Christmas Tree lights switch-on at the Castlegate.
This year’s Christmas Village will see the return of the 150ft Blizzard ride, the open-air ice rink and a new festive-themed crazy golf course.
The attraction returns on November 21 and runs until December 31.
Alongside the Blizzard ride and new crazy golf course, Miami and Freak Out will be returning alongside the stalls on Broad Street.
A new attraction for kids, the Balloon Ride, will also be set up as part of the village.
The attractions will open daily and the market stalls are open from Thursday afternoons to Sunday evenings.
The event is organised by business body Aberdeen Inspired in collaboration with Aberdeen City Council and Codona’s Amusement Park.
First Aberdeen is advising passengers who catch buses on the streets to check the adjusted timetables.
