#UpHellyAa is the #ShetlandIslands #fire #festival held on the last Tuesday of #January every year.

This festival in #Lerwick marks the end of #Yule & recalls ties to @Norway whilst celebrating the #Viking roots on the Shetland #Islands (just off the coast of #Scotland )

The festival day involves marching, lots of wacky, 'outrageous' things & ends with a torch-lit procession & the burning of a galley ship ... plus an all night #party .
