Is 8th Sept 2011 a public holiday?

Hello - I am in Malta for a week commencing 6th Sept staying in Buggiba. According to my guidebook 8th Sept is a public holiday. Do the public buses and hoho buses run on that day? Is it worth going to Valetta for the celebrations (if the buses run) and would everything else (shops etc) in Valetta be open or closed?

Hi Uksisters. I can answer part of your query. 8 September is a public holiday in Malta as it is the Feast of Our Lady of Victories. The hoho buses operate a Sunday service on public holidays, eg half a day, just mornings. Enjoy your holiday on Malta.

Its worth going to Valletta as there will be a parade and marching band even if most shops will be closed , bars and restaurants will not .

Thanks for that - will the public buses be running day? The hoho bus doesnt sound like a good option if it only runs in the morning.
