Celebrating Maltese tradition in one special fireworks event
The Malta Fireworks Special will be taking place over four days in four stunning locations
Malta and Gozo’s skies will be lit up this coming September in what promises to be an ode to one of Malta’s instantly-recognisable traditions – the art of fireworks.
The Malta Fireworks Special will be taking place over four days, in four stunning locations. Kicking off on the 4th September in Gozo, the Fireworks Special continues on the 9th September in Mqabba, on the 11th in Mellieha, and finishing off with a grand finale on the 20th September, in Valletta’s Grand Harbour.
Those watching will be treated to traditional sets of fireworks, as well as complex 5-7 minute firework shows, all at the hands of 29 Firework Factories and 45 Firework Associations from across Malta and Gozo.
“The Malta Fireworks Special event is of sterling news for the entertainment industry. As we continue heading on the path towards normality, it is crucial that the Maltese public remains responsible with full respect of the regulations outlined by the Superintendence of Public Health. I wish all the best of luck to the organizers and a special thanks to the Malta Tourism Authority who played a paramount part in making this event a reality,” outlined Minister for Tourism and Consumer Protection Clayton Bartolo.
“We are more than delighted to be organising the Malta Fireworks Special, in a year where, once again, we had to sacrifice our biggest summer traditions, which are the Feasts and the Fireworks. As always, everyone’s health and safety is of paramount importance, and for this reason, we are hereby encouraging people to not gather at the sites of the shows, but to view the fireworks from different vantage points, whilst always adhering to the COVID-19 regulations,” Johann Buttigieg, CEO of the Malta Tourism Authority added
