Malta celebrates Santa Marija in colourful style

If you love noise, fireworks, food, drink, colour, Maltese culture and tradition – it’s your lucky day.

The festa season in Malta and Gozo reaches its peak today as the nation comes together to mark the Santa Marija holiday.

Tens of thousands of people have already crossed the sea to Gozo to enjoy the massive celebrations in Victoria.

Meanwhile, one of the main events in Malta is the annual fireworks spectacular in Mqabba.

Spectacular displays were held in towns and villages across the Maltese Islands last night – including Mosta, Ghaxaq, Gudja, Attard, Qrendi and Birkirkara as well as in Mqabba and Victoria.

We’ve rounded up the best moments from last night’s festa celebrations for you.
