Spring is in the air and the strawberry season is here! What better way to celebrate this time than to attend the annual strawberry festival in Malta, better known by the locals as ‘Festa Frawli‘?
The festival, now in its 11th year, is very popular among the Maltese and takes place in the main square outside the Parish Church in Mġarr, an agricultural village on the north side of the island. Mġarr is renowned for its excellent quality strawberries, which boast a unique sweet taste. As the festival approaches the Mġarr locals eagerly prepare for the much awaited event. Thousands of strawberries are picked, prepared and packed. Children rehearse for performances to be staged on the church square and attractive stalls are set up to welcome Maltese visitors and foreigners alike.
