The Nadur Carnival activities start today, Saturday, the 6th of February, with the “Miss Queen Carnival 2010,” at the MBC Theatre, an activity by the Mnarja Band Club in collaboration with the Nadur Local Council.
Besides the Spontaneous Carnival at Nadur there will be the Organised Carnival. This is programmed for Sunday, the 7th of February starting at noon at the St Peter and St Paul Square with: Il-Kumittiva, Miss Queen Carnival (Malta), Miss Queen Carnival from Desborough (Great Britain), dance groups, Mnarja band, Big Friends GuggenMusik 2008, Carnival costume groups, a traditional music group and floats with the presentation by Ronald Briffa. The 20 finalists for the ‘Song for Europe’ will be the special guests with their songs. The programme ends with the Kukkanja. A special momento will be given to all the participants.
The Nadur Spontaneous Carnival will take place from the 12-16th February.
The policy followed by the Nadur Local Council and the Sub Committee responsible for the carnival activities is to do their best to sustain spontaneity and creativity without any intervention whatsoever. The Local Council’s only intervention in the spontaneous carnival is to plan safety measures in collaboration with the police about traffic management, the engagement of Red Cross, the licensing of hawkers, instalment of adequate lighting and the cleansing. The rest is left to the imagination of the ‘maskerati.’
