The 2017 Up Helly Aa Takes Place In The Shetland Islands

LERWICK, SCOTLAND - JANUARY 31: Guzier Jarl Lyall Gair and his Jarl throw their torches onto the galley on January 31, 2017 in Lerwick, Shetland. The traditional festival of fire, known as Up Helly Aa, takes place annually on the last Tuesday of January. The climax of the day came with participants wearing costumes as they hauled a Viking long boat through the streets of Lerwick to the edge of town where up to 1000 paraders set the vessel ablaze by throwing torches into the galley.
