Pictured above is the moment when all the guizers encircle the Jarl in the galley before the burning takes place.
The sheer scale of the event is evident here as the park fills with guizers having marched around the streets. If you click on the image to enlarge, have a look at everything that is going on from the locals watching out of their windows to the many camera flashes of people recording this fantastic spectacle. If you look closely you can see Jarl John Hunter standing in the galley. The view he experienced must have been amazing.
