If you happen to be visiting Malta at the end of February, you may be lucky enough to join in with one of the island’s most flamboyant, colourful and outrageous traditional festivals, Karnival. Carnival week in Malta and Gozo typically involves massive, extravagantly decorated floats displayed in a procession through the capital city of Valletta, street parties and food, and merry-makers all dressed in larger-than-life fancy dress costumes. Although the heart of the action is Valletta, many towns and cities have their own festivities for the occasion, the most famous of which being the macabre interpretation found in Nadur in Gozo. Check out https://www.karnivaltamalta.org/ for more details about this mega Maltese street party.
