Magical fireworks festival

It’s time again for the annual Malta International Fireworks Festival. This will be the 13th edition, so definitely something worth watching!

The displays will take place on Friday 25th (Marsaxlokk), Saturday 26th (Bugibba) and Wednesday 30th April 2014 (Valletta) .

The competitive event will showcase spectacular pyrotechnic displays synchronised to music - all presented by a number of Maltese and international fireworks companies.

Malta have a long standing tradition with fireworks, dating back to the late Middle Ages. The firing of muskets,  gun salutes, and other forms of fireworks, were an expression of rejoicing, and used during special occasions when festivities were held.

During the summer months, both Malta and Gozo  come very much alive thanks to the crowded calendar of village festas that take place.

Have a look at the Visit Malta website for more information on the locations of the various events.
