Carnival Celebrations in Valletta

If you are in Malta in February don’t miss out on the traditional Carnival celebrations!

Carnival in Malta has been celebrated since the 15th century and you can expect dozens of marching bands, colourful floats, stunning costumes and thousands of people! Carnival doesn’t have a fix date. It is always held during the week leading up to Ash Wednesday.

Also don’t forget to taste the traditional Carnival sweets – Prinjolata! I also added some Perlini (sugar coated almonds) just to make my life even sweater than it already is. 🙂 Who wants a piece?
