Xaghra is celebrating the Feast of the Nativity of Our Lady today (also known as the Feast of Our Lady of Victory) – a national holiday, known as Jum il-Vittorja (Victory Day).
Fortunately missing the heavy rain showers, the Beland Band of Zejtun and the Precursor Band of Xewkija performed popular band marches around the village streets.
This evening the procession with the statue of Our Lady is due to leave the Basilica at 7.30pm, led by Bishop George Bugeja OFM and the Collegiate Chapter and clergy. The Leone Band of Victoria will perform a musical programme at Victory Square.
