Plans for the Lincoln Knights' Trail have been announced for 2017.
The summertime attraction follows on from the success of last year's Lincoln Barons' Charter Trail.
This time, Lincolnshire BIG (Business Improvement Group) has teamed-up with key partners, including Wild in Art, to create an even bigger trail next year.
They are hoping to attract 35 businesses and organisations to sponsor newly-designed knight sculptures.
Launching the new attraction at a reception at The White Hart Hotel in Bailgate, Lincoln BIG Chief Executive Matt Corrigan revealed that 15 sponsors have already pledged their support, including returning sponsors who invested in last year's trail.
"The Barons' Charter Trail raised £167,000 for charity and it is still being talked about, but we want to go one better next year."
"We are aiming for a larger trail, which will give more businesses and organisations the chance to take part in what is ultimately a great marketing opportunity. Part of the money raised when these sculptures are auctioned will go to our local homeless charity The Nomad Trust.
"We also plan to use some of the monies raised to kickstart an Art & Innovation Fund for the city, to allow us to deliver future public art and events. "We are also going to be working with the EBP (Education Business Partnership), which will be running an education programme across all of the county's schools."

More than 27,000 people saw part of the poppies sculpture from the Tower of London at Lincoln Castle over the bank holiday weekend.
'Wave' remembers soldiers who lost their lives in the Great War. It was installed at the Castle last week and features 5,500 ceramic poppies.
Over the Bank Holiday weekend 27,797 people visited the castle to see the sculpture, which can be seen for free in the grounds.
"We always knew people would travel from far and wide to see the sculpture, but the number of visitors over the weekend has far exceeded our expectations.
"I'm delighted so many people have taken the opportunity to experience this wonderful piece of art – it makes all the hard work worthwhile.
"I'm sure many more people will follow over the coming months."
Wave can be seen at Lincoln Castle until 4 September 2016.

A Lincolnshire airshow that was scrapped last year because of security concerns will take place at a different location in September, organisers have announced.
The show at RAF Waddington was cancelled amid safety fears last September because the base is home to the 39 Squadron which controls the Reaper drones in Afghanistan.
Now organisers have confirmed the show will instead take place at RAF Scampton, near Lincoln, probably on September 9 and 10.
“For the purposes of planning, we are looking at staging the airshow on the second weekend in September.
"We now have to go out to all those people and companies we’ll be relying on to ensure we have everything in place to stage an exciting and safe airshow. Once this is done, we’ll confirm the dates and hopefully have tickets on sale by the end of the year.”

Plans for an hourly train service from Lincoln to Birmingham will be discussed by councillors in Lincolnshire today.
Members of Lincolnshire County Council's Economic Scrutiny Committee will consider how the proposals fit into their wider economic strategy.
The plans are included in the potential service improvements linked to the new East Midlands Rail Franchise due to start in March 2018.
The service would be operated either by East Midlands Trains or Cross Country, and would be around 20 minutes quicker.
