Festa Qargħasel, a culinary and cultural activity organised by the Mosta local council is being held today in the square next to the Rotunda and the surrounding area.

The event will offer various attractions, including għana, traditional dances, a re-enactment of a traditional Maltese wedding, a commemorative educational leaflet, discussions, food, drinks and more. There will also be a gig by local band Airport Impressions.

Tradition recounts how pumpkin pie was very popular among the people in Mosta. Moreover, honey was apparently abundant in the valley crossing Mosta, aptly named Wied il-Għasel (Honey Valley).

An old tradition recounts how an amount of honeybees produced a substantial amount of honey in their hives, which were found between the rocks, and during certain times, one could see honey dripping from the rocks.

Festa Qargħasel is being held in Mosta today from 7pm onwards. This project is endorsed by the Valletta 2018 Foundation.
