Fireworks festival from holiday apartment in Malta

Malta has a long tradition of producing fireworks and a great love of setting them off. Now, in conjunction with the Malta Food Festival, the Malta Fireworks Festival is greater than ever. The crashes and amazing colours explode over the Grand Harbour illuminating the dramatic skyline of Valletta offering stunning views when you book a holiday apartment in Malta and enjoy these spectacular Malta events.

Malta Fireworks Festival

The Malta Fireworks Festival in Valletta is a recent addition to the Malta events calendar. Since the year of its conception it has exploded, excuse the pun, onto the international scene as one of the best and brightest festivals and fireworks competitions on the Mediterranean festival circuit. Relax in a holiday apartment in Malta and watch the brilliantly colourful spectacle shine overhead.

Holiday apartment in Malta for Grand Harbour

The festival takes place around the Grand Harbour in Valletta, more specifically at Lascaris Wharf. The water makes for a stunning reflection and the colours of the fireworks look absolutely divine against Valletta’s castle walls and all of the church towers.

There is also a fabulous laser lights show set to music accompanying the pyrotechnics. The Malta Fireworks Festival takes place in April when the island is in full bloom, and with ideal weather it’s a great time to book a holiday apartment in Malta.

The Malta Food Festival

The festival of food at the Valletta Waterfront is a much loved event. Also centred around the Grand Harbour in Valletta this makes a perfect addition to the Malta Fireworks Festival.

The Malta Food Festival, is just that; a great celebration not only of the flavourful cuisine of Malta, but also of international fare. Restaurants turn out special menus and set up food tents serving delicious wine around the Grand Harbour.

Malta is very proud of its national wines and you can find that your glass seems to be bottomless during the Malta Fireworks Festival. So by day eat, drink and be merry and as the sun sets be ready for one of the best fireworks shows in the Malta events diary, and perhaps, in the world! Only then retire the comfort of your holiday apartment in Malta.
