Candles light in Birgu again

A three-day event out of the ordinary expects those who will be in Malta in the weekend of October 9-11. Across the Grand Harbour from the capital city of Valletta, lies the beautiful quaint harbour town of Birgu or Vittoriosa, which celebrates a unique festival with lots of interesting twists. One of the highlights is the Birgu by Candle Light, when the streets and narrow lanes of Birgu are deprived of their normal electricity lights to be lit instead by thousands of candles. It is a night to remember when Birgu is literally seen under a different light and appreciated even more for its historical heritage.
