Living in Shetland, I am spoilt with the vast array of local events happening throughout the year. In particular between January and March when the Up Helly Aa season is with us. In the summer there are two local motorbike rally's, the Simmer Dim Rally and the Nort Rock Rally. There is also the Midsummer Carnival where a vast procession takes place through the very centre of Lerwick consisting of a number of themed floats. There are so much more to mention!
