Dumfries and Galloway's 'Day of the Region' is being launched in the old mining town of Kirkconnel today.
A miner's wheel is being unveiled to mark the start of the project, which encourages communities to make the most of what's on their doorstep.
More than 250 events, funded by the Dumfries and Galloway LEADER project, will take place in ten communities on Saturday.
