A Scottish town which hopes to be given city status as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee plans to hold "Scotland's biggest celebrations".
Perth officials are planning a parade of 1000 pipers and a Guinness World Record attempt for the most people running in kilts, along the River Tay for the Diamond Jubilee weekend in June.
Pipe bands from as far afield as Germany, Switzerland, the USA and Pakistan are being recruited to take part in the mammoth march.
The world-record breaking kilt run will see hundreds of people jogging along a scenic 8km route, trying to beat the current record of 1089 people set by Perth's twin town of Perth, Ontario.
A "Big Jubilee lunch" combining "picnics, performances and proms" is also planned for the town's grassy North Inch, with people encouraged to have lunch with their neighbours as a simple act of community, friendship and fun.
Provost John Hulbert said: "The event will provide something for everyone. Local people will be able to bring their families and enjoy a picnic and entertainment, visitors from near and far will see Perth showcased with the spectacular parade and we hope to make our name world-wide by breaking the kilt run record."
