The incident, though brief, escalated quickly, drawing the attention of bystanders. However, before the situation could deteriorate further, another individual intervened, effectively breaking up the fight.

Nadur Local Council Awarded By Gozo Tourism Association 

Nadur has once again become the centre of attention following the success of its spontaneous carnival celebrations.

Last year’s Saturday event organised by the Local Council, the Ministry for Gozo, G7 Events and Malta Daily, was particularly successful, with more than 25,000 people descending on the town to take part in the festivities, however the success of the multiple days of carnival spontaneous celebrations, landed the Nadur Local Council a prestigious award during the GTA awards held this week.

The spontaneous carnival in Nadur is a unique event that draws visitors from all over the world to experience the vibrant atmosphere, colourful costumes, and the impressive floats that take to the streets. Last year’s event was no exception, with a record-breaking number of attendees coming to witness the spectacle.

Last year, the local authorities were well prepared for the influx of visitors. The Nadur Local Council played a crucial role in ensuring that the event was a success, working closely with the Ministry for Gozo, G7 Events, and Malta Daily, to provide the necessary support and infrastructure.

The success of last year’s carnival is a testament to the passion and commitment of the organisers, who worked tirelessly to create an event that truly showcases unique culture and spirit. 

The event has become a highlight of the cultural calendar, not just for the town of Nadur, but for the entire island of Gozo.

Speaking about this award, Nadur Mayor Edward Said said that he is “Proud of the GTA AWARD achieved for the NADUR CARNIVAL” and dedicated the award to all the people of Nadur “who really love our spontaneous carnival, the traditional maskarati, councillors, volunteers, staff, authorities and those who assist us financially.” Edward Said promised “to keep safeguarding and enhancing this biggest Carnival in Malta” ending his post by reminding everyone that this year’s carnival is around the corner.

The Nadur Carnival is officially back with an organised carnival taking place on the 4th of February and a spontaneous carnival between the 9th and 13th of February.  The beloved carnival sees thousands making their way to the festivities, as funnies and attractions fill up the locality. And of course, people attend with their most outlandish and creative costumes. Both the Organised and Spontaneous Carnival are staged in collaboration and lasting help of the Ministry for Gozo and the Directorate for Cultural Heritage.
