Carnival in Malta

Late Winter/Early spring is the time of year to plan a visit to Malta.  The beautiful Mediterranean island south of Sicily is steeped in culture and activities to liven your dreary winter blues.  Reserve a cheap car hire from Malta Airport to explore the island.

Carnival Float in Malta

The hottest thing happening next month is the Malta Carnival, held between the 17th and 21st of February.  Celebrated in towns and villages across the island, the biggest affairs of the carnival can be found in Valletta and Floriana on the island of Malta, and Nadur on the smaller island Gozo.  Seize the opportunity to witness the colorful floats and extravagant costumes of this tradition dating back several hundred years.  With less than a month to plan for your trip to the Carnival save time and money by reserving your cheap car rental online.

Originating as a week-long celebration put on by the Knights of St John before Ash Wednesday, today's celebrations are a family affair, a competitive float feat, and a world class spectacle.  Young and old gather together to see the most artistically created floats as they are judged.  The conclusion to the Carnival is on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday and comes with a fireworks display.  

If February is a little too soon for you to plan such a trip by car hire in Malta why not begin saving now to attend the Malta Mediterranean Folk Music Festival in June.  This 3 day event features the folk music of Malta, as well as a few neighboring Mediterranean countries.  You can attend workshops and learn how to play traditional instruments, taste a variety of traditional Maltese foods, and enjoy the Argotti Botanical Gardens.
