The Bon Accord Harvest Days has been an event for over 30 years, always taking place the second weekend in August
Last night (August 11), the slow pitch tournament kicked off the weekend full of events in perfect weather. 
This morning started with a parade, fairgrounds opening at 11:00 a.m., as well as the market with something for everyone.
"It's such a great weekend with a lot of things going on, it wouldn't be possible without our volunteers which I appreciate so much," explained Amanda Houlihan, chair of Harvest Days.
The fireworks will start around 10:00 p.m. this evening (August 12).
Tomorrow, Harvest Days wraps up with a pancake breakfast. They will also be accepting donations for the Bon Accord and Gibbons Food Bank.
