Monster truck joins Midsummer Carnival

The Red Dragon monster truck: in Shetland this weekend for some car crushing.

EUROPE’s only monster racing truck is in Shetland this weekend to participate in the annual Midsummer Carnival but also to perform a number of car crashing stunts.

The Red Dragon monster truck will be at the Tesco car park later on Friday where bids can be made for one of just ten available seats on the truck during Saturday’s procession.

The monster truck has also been booked to offer rides and perform car-crushing stunts on the Gressy Loan school car park, all day Saturday and Sunday.

Organiser Malcolm Younger said Lerwick was going to be “awash with colour” with the 10th anniversary of the revived carnival extravaganza offering something for everyone.

A variety of floats are again mustering at the Lower Hillhead from where the procession commences at 6.30pm heading towards Victoria Pier.

The procession will also feature a selection of junior jarl squads, a Lerwick fire engine and the coastguard.

The summer princesses from Bells Brae and Sound Schools will oversee the festivities. Foot collectors following the floats in fancy dress will be collecting donations for the Callum Younger Reach Fund.
