Malta’s summer carnival hits the streets this week

It’s one of the most colourful and Instagrammable events in the Maltese calendar.

Malta’s fifth summer carnival hits the streets this week – promising a riot of colour, dancing, music and fun.

This year’s event will feature 11 floats and 10 dance companies, as well as bands and street performers.

Celebrations will be held in St Paul’s Bay on Friday and Saturday with a parade along Bugibba promenade.

On Sunday, the fun moves to Marsascala with a procession along the promenade from 7pm.

The Summer Carnival is organised by the Malta Arts Council, Valletta 2018 Foundation, the Malta Tourism Authority, St Paul’s Bay Council and Marsascala Local Council.
