The last Tuesday in January is always Up Helly Aa in Lerwick. Lerwick’s is the largest fire festival although other Shetland communities have them too.

Jennifer took these photos of Up Helly Aa. Her nephew was in the Junior Jarl Squad. The first photos are of the Junior Squad with their galley and then there are photos of the adult procession and galley burning.
