There were Carnival band marches by the Victory Band of Xaghra, starting from near Ta’ Kola Windmill in Bambina Street, and then went along Frangisk Camilleri Street, Imqades Street, 8th September Avenue and finished in Victory Square.
This was followed by the first part of the kumittiva dance and then Carnival Band Marches by the Victory Band in Victory Square.
From noon onwards a varied Carnival programme was held in Victory Square, including a defilé of Carnival floats, dance by local companies and the traditional kumittiva dance.Carnival fever continues this evening and comes to a close tomorrow:
