Easter Via Sagra drive-through to be launched

With Easter fast approaching, the locals want nothing more than to celebrate the feast with family and friends. This year, however, COVID-19 restrictions have been tightened like never before, with people being restricted to no more than two in public, as well as within private residences. As a result, villages have taken the opportunity to get a little more creative this year with San Ġwann being the first. It will be getting its very first Via Sagra, in the form of a neon light drive-through display.

The San Ġwann local council have stressed and emphasised the importance of safety during the ongoing pandemic and are therefore offering people of the locality a way to enjoy the Easter period safely.

San Ġwann’s Via Sagra display will be showing key moments from Biblical stories, for people to absorb and enjoy from a distance, within their own vehicles.

The locality’s mayor, Trevor Fenech, said that: “Preparation works under way for the first Via Sagra in San Ġwann. Light features being installed, which can be enjoyed as a drive-through from the safety of your vehicle.”

“An initiative by the San Ġwann Local council, however, a special thanks goes to Dominic Cassar, who has been working side by side with me to make this event possible. When we work together, we can achieve anything,” he continued.

What do you think of the display?
