Village Festas October

Hi there

We are there 10-15 October and were interested in checking out a village/parish festival - the two I can find are the 12th in Marsa and the 14 in Ghasri (Gozo). Would anyone recommend one over the other? What is the best time to be at the festivals?

Have not attended either Festa, but would assume the Marsa one to be the larger of the two.

Maybe 'Siggiewi' will be able to comment with some authority.
