The finishing touches are being put to preparations for Ellon’s Hogmanay celebrations.
The Gig at the Brig 2013 is expected to attract up to 3000 people to the town centre.
Ellon Events have organised the inaugural street party.
The Market Street gig will be headlined by Pitmedden’s Terry McDermott - who has taken the USA by storm - and his band the Bonfires.
Casino Circus, Silver City Soul Review and Jake Coghill are also on the bill.
The festivities get under way at 7pm and are due to continue through until 1am.
The programme of entertainment will also include Ellon Royal British Legion Pipe Band and a fireworks display to take in the New Year.
There will be a beer tent and food available.
