Published on March 30, 2017 by Frank

 

 

Festa Frawli

This Sunday, 2 April, all roads in Malta and Gozo lead to the little village of Mgarr for the eleventh consecutive Festa Frawli - Strawberries Festival. Similar to last year, the peak visiting time will be between 10.ooam and 5.00pm.  However, large crowds flock the main square and streets of this village much earlier than 10 in the morning.

In a nutshell, one can say that this Spring festival offers something for everyone. It does focus on the younger ones - the children with various eco-activities and organised games. If you are visiting the Festa Frawli on Sunday, you will find an incredible choice of all sorts of food with one common ingredient - the bright red local strawberries.

A word of thanks and gratitude goes to the Mgarr Local Council, all the personnel involved in the Festa Frawli organisation and the farmers - for their incessant dedication and commitment throughout the whole process of strawberry growing.

Hi! :) My name is Frank, born and live on the island of Gozo, Malta in the very heart of the Mediterranean Sea. I believe every holiday is a beautiful journey to discover and treasure new places in a local way. Well…I enjoy most swimming, walking, cycling, food and wine pairing. Last but not least, sea-kayaking in Gozo is top in my list and Hondoq is a place I really like. Please do not hesitate to text me. You are most welcome anytime! Grazzi hafna / Many thanks
