Maltese culture and talent highlighted through magnificent floats

Carnival weekend in Malta and Gozo saw some ingenious creativity all over the islands, but nothing could beat the craftsmanship that went into the construction of these massive floats.

All of them themed, floats were equipped with moving parts to signify living characters, smoke and confetti blowing out of the intricate machinery and costumed performers accompanying the floats.

The floats are a testament to Maltese culture and the passion that goes behind this celebratory time of year. 

And the enthusiasts really went for it this year after a hiatus imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite some fog expected for night-time, forecasts indicate that the sun will shine starting Monday 20th February all the way to Friday 24th. 

However, there might be some bad news for the weekend as Saturday and Sunday are set to bring in some cloudy weather. 

According to the Malta International Airport forecast page, temperatures are set to feel like approximately 17 to even 22 degrees Celsius. 

The highest temperatures are expected to reach around 22 degrees Celsius, with the lowest being around 9 degrees Celsius.

Puppy with broken front legs handed to Association for Abandoned Animals

The NGO Association for Abandond Animals took to social media to share the story of Philip, a 6 month old dog with two broken front legs.

Philip was handed to Animal Welfare and now brought to AAA sanctuary. The latter forwarded the X-Rays handed by Animal Welfare to a vet, with the clinic making space for him so he could be operated. 

‘Thank you Dr Trevor’s Clinic. Thank you for being there in all of our emergency cases and all medical issues.’

The NGO expressed frustration at the constant influx of abandonment cases. People are reportedly throwing their dogs in the streets whilst others call animal welfare and sanctuaries ‘pretending they found a dog in the streets so they don’t go to the vet when their pet gets injured and then just buying a brand new dog.’ 

‘One vicious cruel cycle’ the AAA said, condemning it.
