The winner of Team GB's first gold medal at the London 2012 Olympics will be welcomed home on Friday.
Heather Stanning, who won gold in the women's rowing pairs event with Helen Glover, will be driven through the streets of Elgin in an open-top army Land Rover.
Crowds, including hundreds of school children, are expected to gather along the route and outside the Moray Council headquarters, where she is to be honoured with a scroll.
Stanning is the first Olympic gold medallist across the Highlands and north-east of Scotland to return home after the games.
Leader of Moray Council, Allan Wright, has been helping to coordinate Friday's event with the athlete’s parents, said: "The whole of Moray is immensely proud of Heather and her achievements.
"As a council we wanted to express this pride, and the convener will be presenting a scroll marking her success, on behalf of everyone in Moray.
"We are also creating an annual sporting award in Heather's name to recognise achievement by a young person in Moray. I know that this was something Heather is particularly keen on."
Present at the ceremony will be her Lossiemouth-based parents, Tim and Mary, and some of her former teachers.
Stanning will enter Elgin at 12.30pm from the west and parade through the town before arriving at council headquarters at 1pm.
After the Elgin event Stanning will be driven to Lossiemouth to attend another reception at the local town hall.
