The external celebrations for the Feast of Our Lady of Loreto in Ghajnsielem got underway on Thursday evening with the Ghajnsielem Fest ’13.
Large crowds attended the very popular festival, which provides a platform for local talent and once again included dances and songs performed by a mixed lineup.
Special guests for the show were popular comedians Gorg and Pawlu. The festival also kept in line with tradition and invited a winner from the Malta Song for Eurovision Song Contest. This year it was Kurt Calleja’s turn, who also performed several songs with Ghajnsielem’s Deborah C.
Participants included Deborah C, Kelly Cassar, Daphne Xuereb, Scortino, Gabriella, Sarah Bonnici, Albern Lauren and Loredana Aguis, Elenor dances, Janica Camilleri’s dance group, Victoria Xuereb, Michela Pace, Charlie Buttigieg and Urgo Choir.
Ghajnsielem Fest is an annual event organised by the Ghajnsielem Local Council. The evening’s entertainment was broadcast live on Ghajnsielem’s Radju Lauretana.
