THE Celebrate Aberdeen 2020 events have been cancelled due to the current Covid-19 situation.
The parade and events weekend were scheduled for August with the awards ceremony planned for three weeks later.
Morven Mackenzie, Celebrate Aberdeen founder said: “Although the events are still some months away, we have made the decision to cancel.
“Last year we had 4,000 people parading with thousands more turning up to watch the parade. Because of the scale of event, we didn’t feel it was appropriate for it to go ahead this year.
“It’s deeply disappointing of course, because Celebrate Aberdeen was founded to showcase and celebrate the enormous contribution that charities, voluntary groups and social enterprises make to the lives of countless people.”
Last year, more than 150 organisations took part in the parade which travels the length of Aberdeen’s Union Street.
