Tar Bar’ls – New Year’s Eve in Allendale

Every year on Netarbaal-2010-9-croppedw Year’s Eve, Allendale square comes alive with a spectacle of fire.  A procession of ‘guysers’ carry flaming barrels of tar on their heads then fling them into the fire in the square on the stroke of midnight.

If you are not staying overnight you will need to arrive early to get parked and walk into the village.  The procession starts around 11.45pm.
