Malta Carnival will be held between the 17th and the 21st of February, 2012.
Malta's Carnival dates back several hundred years to the 16th century when Maltese and the Knights of St John would hold a week-long event leading up to Ash Wednesday.

Today, carnival is celebrated in numerous towns and villages, but especially in Valletta, Floriana and Nadur, Gozo. It is a riot of colour with decorated floats and extravagant costumes and also an excuse for families to join in the merrymaking and marvel at the inventiveness of the float designers and crews. It also encourages a competitive spirit as floats are judged under several categories.

The Malta Council for Culture and the Arts organises the official carnival festivities that take place in Valletta from the Friday until the following Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. On the last day, a big Carnival defile ends in the main street of Floriana with a fireworks display. Some of the events are held inside an enclosure close to Freedom Square in Valletta. The events held here may be attended against a nominal fee.
