Carnival is a jolly season
Carnival in Malta has been re-established as a season of general jollification and an artistic event full of colours and general merriment. Carnival is one of the main Cultural events in the Maltese calendar, full of tradition that dates back more than 500 years.
The Malta Council for the Culture and the Arts within the Ministry of Tourism and Culture is solely responsible to organize and promote the National Maltese Carnival for 2013, which is due to be between February 8 – 12.
Carnival 2013 main activities are held in both Valletta and Floriana. Such activities attract not only the general public, but are a stimulus for tourist that literally invade such localities to experience such a unique multi-cultural event.
