Malta’s epic Christmas Fairyland closes this Sunday

It’s been hailed as the most popular visitor attraction in Malta this Christmas.

But organisers have confirmed that Fairyland Malta at Triton Square in Valletta will come to an end on Sunday 5 January.

So if you haven’t been you need to get your skates on – quite literally!

The 900m2 outdoor ice rink has been a huge hit over Christmas and New Year – even with those of us who can’t skate very well.

It’s the main focus of Fairyland Malta, organised by VisitMalta Events.

Children will have an a wonderful time viewing Valletta, Floriana and the Grand Harbour from the top of the 32-metre high Rudolph’s Wheel.

They can also hop on to Santas’ magical carousel and then get the opportunity to meet Father Christmas in his beautiful grotto, letting him know if they have been naughty or nice.

Here’s everything you need to know:
