Road closures for the Aberdeen Union Street Christmas lights switch on parade involve routes from Harlaw Academy at Albyn Place, Union Street and the Castlegate.
As darkness falls the Xmas lights will be switched on through Union Street and the parade will take place with festive and carnival characters, street entertainment and musicians. The parade, which forms part of the Aberdeen Winter Festival, is usually themed and celebrities include the HMT pantomime
stars and the Lord Provost. As it passes each overhead light it will be switched on. Once the lights are switched on Aberdeen University students will follow in their carnival floats and raise a collection for the students charities campaign.
