Malta International Fireworks Festival

The Ministry for Tourism and the Malta Tourism Authority will once again join forces to organise the 14th edition of the Malta International Fireworks Festival. The festival forms part of the anniversary celebrations of Malta's accession to the European Union and the colourful spectacle annually attracts thousands of locals and tourists alike.

Following the positive feedback received after last year's edition, this year's events shall once again commence in the charming fishing village of Marsaxlokk on Saturday 25th April 2015. The event will continue on Thursday, 30th April against the magnificent and unique back drop that is Valletta's Grand Harbour. The closing display, which will consist of a Pyromusical show, will be held on Saturday, 02nd May and can be viewed from the tourist hub of Bugibba.

The festival has rightfully earned the title of "International" as it has attracted pyrotechnic companies from Malta as well as from further afield. The competitors in this year's festival were short-listed from a number of applicants and will include fireworks factories from countries such as Thailand and Italy.

The Maltese are renowned for their love of fireworks and this can be seen from the way they are used in almost any type of celebration or event, especially during the traditional villages festas. This year's edition of the Malta International Fireworks Festival is shaping up to be an added reason to visit some of Malta's most scenic and historic spots during April and May.
