Even though, the day of the feast is on the days specified above, there’s usually a lot of exciting and fun events such as what is locally known as il-marcijiet brijuzi leading up to the main feast day from the days before hand.
The marcijiet brijuzi involve many locals dressed in the colours associated with their village and their patron saint as they sing and dance along to the original anthems of their village, so it is definitely not the type of event to be missed!
The streets of each locality are also donned and filled with colourful decorations, like ones you have never seen before.
