‘Tis the season to dress up and let your hair down – Carnival has arrived! The programme of events kicks off at 6pm on Thursday at St George’s Square in Valletta, with the opening ceremony, followed by competitive dancing and a costume parade.

The weekend is chock-full of activities and Valletta will be transformed into a playground for the wild and wacky. Expect to see lots of little ‘ninjago’ ninjas, Annas and Belles. Friday will see more dance competitions and an appearance by the King Carnival Float, as well as other satirical floats, which participants have been furiously preparing for months now.

The events are in full-swing over the weekend with more floats, competitions, a children’s carnival and even a play, organised by Teatru Malta, called L-Gharusa Karfusa, about the forbidden love between a vegetable and a fruit. Tomapple anyone?
