I'm lucky that the carnival is on while I am in Malta (this is the reasons I picked this February week) and I was just wondering if any other posters had seen it before? (I'm sure there will be some!)
I was thinking of heading up to Valletta to watch the events there, they sound pretty good. Any advice from carnival goers out there?
Thanks, and sorry for all these questions in the last few days! I go soon and am getting very over excited!
We have been to the Carnival in Malta twice.
It really is great fun and completely mad.
You can buy tickets to sit in the square just inside the main gate into Valleta and these are not expensive.
You can also just wander around the floats or sit at any number of the cafes etc on the route and watch.
If you are taking children with you then take fancy dress for them. Pretty much all children (and lots of older kids) seem to be dressed up for the entire time of the carnival.
We are from the West of England where this is a huge culture of Carnival http://www.carnival.dsl.pipex.com/ but let me tell you that the Malta Carnival is just so different from anything else that I have ever seen.
Go and really enjoy.
