The activities on Saturday evening and this morning were in and around l-Arcipriet Martin Camilleri Square.The perfect weather attracted large crowds to the fair, enjoying a “feast” for the eyes, with a variety of activities and events to entertain them from the past and the present.
These included an exhibition of local farm products, livestock, crafts, artisans, antique farming tools, traditional ghana, as well as Gozitan food and wine tasting.There was a blessing of pets on Sunday morning by the village Archpriest Mons. Jimmy Xerri, with a parade of horses and ponies.
