Christmas shoppers will see Dundee glow to mark the start of the festive season in the city.
The traditional Christmas celebrations have been given a makeover for 2015, with a pop up market filled with local suppliers, the annual torch parade amped up with even more participants, live music and street entertainment as well as an open air ceilidh all planned to get the party started.
Kicking off on November 20, the two-day Christmas Street Festival will launch on the Friday with a pop up market, the first of its kind in the city featuring only local suppliers offering everything from gifts to locally sourced food, as well as snacks and drinks to consume during the festivities.
As the night draws in, a 700-strong crowd will march from Dundee High School with some 200 torchbearers lighting the route towards the annual Christmas light switch on.
Afterwards, the crowds can enjoy treats from the market stalls, street entertainment and live music, late night shopping at the city centre malls and even dance under the stars thanks to an open air ceilidh led by the Cutting Edge Ceilidh Band.
The following day, the pop up market will join forces with the local farmers market at city square to become one of the largest markets to be held in Dundee.
Will Dawson, convener for Dundee City Council's economic development, said: "This is shaping up to be a fantastic event for Dundee.
"Particularly The Pop Up Dundee Christmas Street Market which has been in development since earlier this year as part of our aim to encourage and grow a pop up culture within the city.
"The street market in Shore Terrace will be a unique opportunity to enjoy some outdoors eating, entertainment and shopping alongside all the other great events lined up for the night."
Ahead of the event itself, retail expert Susan Reid will host a Design Your Stall workshop on November 2, designed to offer street market participants creative ideas and guidance on creating enticing stalls for the Christmas market.
And children will be invited to make Christmas-shaped sculptures on November 14 and 15 with local artist Kirsty Doig at Baxter Park pavilion to help bring some extra cheer to the torchlight parade.
Those looking to take part in the torchlight procession will also be given the opportunity to enter a competition in early November to be one of the torchbearers lighting up the streets as part of the parade.
