Village Fireworks

Village Fireworks

With nearly 60 festas in Malta on the annual calendar (mostly during the summer months) and nearly 20 festa events on the smaller sister island of Gozo, the Maltese festa, a religious celebration organized by the local parish, is a typical scene of the hot summer months on the island, and very much an iconic part of culture in Malta.

You will be taken to a local village for the Best Eve of the Festa Fireworks Display on the island. Along the way to the Village, places of interest are pointed out and explained by our Licensed Local Guide. Once there, a visit to the Parish Church, splendidly decorated to fit the occasion is a must. Then relax in the unique festa atmosphere with a leisurely stroll around the village streets all beautifully lit up and filled with stalls of traditional festa sweets, while the music of the marching village brass bands fills the air.
