Carnival in Malta
Malta’s Carnival festivities tend to centre around the capital Valletta, Floriana and Nadur Gozo. Celebrations typically include fancy dress parties and a parade of symbolic mechanised floats presided over by the King Carnival float which is supposed to be the best and most beautiful float of them all. There are competitions with prizes for the best dance, best float, best costumes, and best masks.
Carnival is certainly a kind of explosion of colours in the way of decorated floats and costumes. People dress up in all sorts of funny or weird costumes during the celebrations and just go out in the streets to join the floats. All this makes the streets of Valletta and Floriana come alive!
