Aberdeen’s Armed Forces Day celebration is one of the city’s showcase events within its Summer Festival Programme, as well as being part of the national Armed Forces Day celebrations.

It features serving military men and women, veteran associations, cadet and youth organisations who all parade down Union Street accompanied by local pipe bands.

The parade is a celebration of the history and proud record of the Armed Forces and their association and interaction with the local community. It allows the city of Aberdeen and its people to celebrate the Armed Forces and the role they play within our society.

The parade will start at 11am on Saturday 27 June 2015 and will march down Union Street finishing at the Castlegate.
