The Xlendi Administrative Committee is once again organising ‘Il-Fjakkolata tax-Xlendi.’ This event is being held as part of the Xlendi Summer Events for 2012.
The first weekend for thr illumination of the bay will be on Saturday and Sunday, the 11th and 12th of August, between 9.30pm and 12.30am.
‘l-Fjakkolata tax-Xlendi’ will be reviving an almost forgotten tradition when the rugged coastline of Xlendi will be illuminated with torchlight fires to commemorate the liturgical feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the patron saint of Xlendi.
The Committee said that everyone is invited to help and add thier own torchlights or candles on balconies roofs & terraces! A little hint for balconies, large citronella candles also work perfectly and smell pleasant too!
The full programme of events for Xlendi Summer 2012 is shown on the poster above.
