What`s happening in St Julians ?

I have just ( 21.45 today sunday ) been looking at this webcam of St Julians

skylinewebcams.com/en/…st-julians.html

The streets were full of people , there seems to be stalls near the waterfront and lots of fireworks in the sky.

I don`t think there is a festa.

Anybody know what`s happening please,

Graham

Hi Graham being the Oracle of knowledge that I am (OK I may have Googled it :) ) it appears the Aug 31st was the Feast of Saint Julian and it looks like the festivities are continuing. Wish I was there :(

Thanks Tripalot.

I did try googling but didn`t see anything relevant.

You must have found something I didn`t.

Wish I was there also.

Graham what you were seeing is what we call Any Old Excuse to have a p up.

Someone said it was the feast of St.Julians so we cannot let that go to waste so everyone went on the beer.

Tripalot we did have a D/E meet up about 2 years ago so I think we should have one in 2015 what do you think.

Wrappido It's a good idea, just need to synchronize my travel plans with the other non resident DE's. A winter visit is always nice :)

I found myself looking at the webcam in the early hours (I'm becoming something of an insomniac) and could see signs of cleaning taking place around the bay, and by this morning you would not have known there had been a festival.

Tell that to the ladies with sore heads this morning.

You are off to Malta in October 14 I am going in November and Graham he usually arrives between Nov -Dec and we could get a few more that normally arrive around that time.

Lets put up a post to see who is interested in coming over and how many of the locals we can get I heard that Graham will be buying the drink for all so that part is sorted.

My plans will be made last minute since from Amsterdam the flight prices don't change that much. Admittedly November and December would be better value for hotels, although if hubby wants to go too it will be October so that he can dive without freezing. Thinking of trying another resort on my next trip, possibly even a (mostly) walking trip in Gozo - definitely bus it down and up to both Xlendi and Dwerja though :)
