Carnival is always a great time to venture out into local cities, but possibly the best festivities are those held in Gozo. Last weekend, the Carnival celebrations kicked off in Nadur Square where thousands of families coming from all around the islands flocked the streets for the Nadur Organised Carnival.

It is a fact that this is the most popular Organised Carnival in any town on our islands, whereby this year more than 900 persons participated with their performances,” the Nadur Local Council stated. This included “kids’ carnival dances coming from both primary schools as well as other dance companies [and] hilarious dances” which brought a smile to the audience’s faces.

Other dancing groups also took part, spontaneous sketches were put on which gave a little taste of the traditional Spontaneous Carnival at Nadur, maskeruni were featured as well as big floats. Because there ain’t no Maltese Carnival without floats!

This year’s carnival was presented by the popular DanuSan and ended with the traditional Kukkanja for both kids and adults. The programme lasted nearly six hours for which the Minister for Gozo was present together with Mayor Edward Said, local councillors as well as representatives of Gozo Culture and Malta Carnival. According to the Mayor the Carnival experienced yet another record year of people who attended the event.
