Fireworks Festival 2014 Date Change Announcement
The Ministry for Tourism and the Malta Tourism Authority would like to inform the public that due to the forecasted inclement weather with high winds on Saturday 26th April 2014, regretfully the planned fireworks festival due to be held in Bugibba has to be postponed to the following day, Sunday 27th April, with the same scheduled programme.
This unfortunate decision had to be taken due to the predicted high winds on Saturday evening, which may have resulted in health and safety issues if the fireworks setup had gone ahead as originally planned.
