This was the second time I attended a village festa in Malta and I must say I really enjoyed both times. This time it was in a village called Mqabba and it was “The Lady of the Lily” festa. It is a really interesting and fun, but also a serious affair. Everyone is in their best dress from young to old. The streets were decorated with amazing statues, lights and banners. With different food stalls, choirs, orchestras and speeches. Accompanied by a procession of church clergy and congregation members of all ages carrying an amazing, yet heavy statue. Coming to an end with a spectacular fireworks display.
If you would like to attend one of these events you can find the dates for 2016 on the Malta Info Guide
