Footage shared by Bradley Farrugia shows the iconic tradition of the Luqa festa called ‘Il-Marċ Tal-Anġlu’, wherein the statue of an angel is carried up a platform sideways by festa enthusiasts.

The footage shows the moment enthusiasts and members of the Sezzjoni Zgħazagħ Ajklieri u Partitarji push up the heavy statue all the way up to the peak of the platform, before turning back to the crowd to continue with the celebrations iconic to the Maltese feasts.
