Mqabba’s lauded annual fireworks spectacular returns this year with a 90-minute display on the even of the village’s feast of Santa Marija.

Highlights will include the 57-metre high Tower of Light, which will shoot out fitreworks to create unique effects, shapes and letters, as well as pyromusical show that will feature 10,000 shots syncronised top different musical genres.

The display will be divided into three parts, beginning with a pyromusical display, continuing with a series of traditional multibreak cracking shells [beraq] and multi-break coloured sheels, and the third part a pyromusical grand finale with large shells.

Following the fireworks display, viewers can stroll to Mqabba’s village square, where mechanised ground fireworks [irdieden] as large as 10 metres in diameter will be lit.

The fireworks spectacular will take place on August 14 at 9:30pm at Triq il-Konvoj ta’ Santa Marija (Mqabba bypass).

All the fireworks are produced by St Mary Fireworks of Mqabba, which placed first in the Malta International Fireworks Festival in 2006, won the Caput Lucis Fireworks World Championships in Rome in 2007 and the IV Malta Mechanised Ground Fireworks competition in 2010.
