Scalloway Fire Festival 2016


Well the first fire festival of the year kicked off tonight in Scalloway with Jarl Haakon Haraldsson and his galley Astreig processing through the darkened streets of Scalloway...



And on their way to their fiery demise at Port Arthur. Luckily the weather cleared up today for it and remained dry until after the burning.


Three cheers for the Guiser Jarl...

 

And that was that...



Here's a short video of the burning...


And next up is Up Helly Aa in Lerwick in a couple of weeks. Watch this space...
