Fireworks are a yearlong pastime in Malta, and a major part of local festi – village festivals that celebrate their respective patron saints. Taking place all the year round but particularly so in summer, these festi are always lively and colourful. The colour, of course, is best provided by the fireworks that impeccably light the Maltese skies.
2019 sees the 18th edition of the Malta International Fireworks Festival, organised by the Ministry for Tourism and the Malta Tourism Authority. In particular, it will be taking place on four nights between Wednesday, 24th April and Saturday, 4th May 2019. Year after year, the festival a guaranteed time of excitement for locals, tourists, as well as the fireworks factories around the island that get the chance to show off their skills with more gusto than ever. International pyrotechnic companies also make their way to Maltese shores to participate. Previous editions of the festival have seen entries from countries all the way between Australia and Italy.
