|Email item||Print item||
The Xlendi Administrative Committee are once again organising ‘Il-Fjakkolata tax-Xlendi.’ The event was originally held in July and proved to be so succesful it has been decided to repeat it tomorrow, Tuesday, the 9th of August, at Xlendi Bay.
The event will be reviving an almost forgotten tradition when the rugged coastline of Xlendi will be illuminated with torchlight fires to commemorate the liturgical feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the patron saint of Xlendi.
TheCommittee said that everyone is invited to help and add thier own torchlights or candles on balconies roofs & terraces! A little hint for balconies, large citronella candles also work perfectly and smell pleasant too!
The evening of torchlight fires will get underway at 8.30pm.
