‘Mil-Baħar Iżraq Ħadt Ismi’ (From the azure sea I received my name) is the new motto for Żurrieq as it welcomes the seventh edition of Festa Ħut on Sunday 29th of May.
The village of Żurrieq will be once again celebrating the feast centred around fish and marine food products after its massive success throughout the years. Fresh fish will be sold to those who attend in an atmosphere of traditional Maltese culture.
The feast will commemorate and celebrate the trade of fishing, given that it contributed to most of Żurrieq’s cultural, as well as economic, flourishing.
Those who attend will also be given the chance to dine on the freshly sourced fish at noon as various activities fill up the feast. Apart from fun projects for kids and an exhibition by Żurrieq Scout Group, attendees will also be given free entrance into the picturesque ‘Mitħna tax-Xarolla’ (Xarolla Windmill).
The festivities will mainly take place throughout Triq il-Kbira, Misraħ Repubblika and Triq Pietru Pawl Saydon on Sunday 29th May 2022. It will span from 8:00 am to 2:00pm.
Taking to Facebook, Minister for National Heritage, the Arts and Local Government Owen Bonnici thanked Żurrieq mayor Rita Grima and all those involved in setting up this feast.
‘Thanks to the dedication of such people, we can keep Maltese culture alive’ said the Minister.
