Kids may have gone back to school earlier this week, but that’s not a reason for the fun to stop. Tonight, at the Ta’ Qali National Park – in the Picnic Area – families are being invited to relish in the joys of physical activity and sport,at ‘Lejla fil-Park’ an event designed to promote healthier and sustainable lifestyles.

Local personalities, DanuSan will compere the evening, while the Żabbar Scout Group and Tama Tnabar Association will be entertaining the crowds.

This event is being organised by the Sustainable Development Directorate, within the Ministry for the Environment, Energy and Enterprise in collaboration with WasteServ and Project Green.
