Maltese 'Karnival' Part 2

I couldn't resist sharing some photographs taken by my talented friend, Xavier Cornhil Wambergue. 
These photos are of the Carnival procession in Nadur, on the island of Gozo, Nadur is a small  hilltop village which has a particular reputation throughout Malta for its Carnival spirit.

Viva viva Karnival!

It is that time of year again, 
time for bright colours (bit heavy on the neon here), 
wings, cleavage, high heels, booming music, confetti, pralini 
and prinjolata (very sweet Carnival cake) ! 
Sadly the four day holiday weekend was largely overtaken by terrible weather- 
hail, pouring rain, huge dark clouds and lots of wind- 
was freeeezing! Apart from some hours on Monday- so out we went!! 
Sadly though I think many of the floats were damaged and the grand finale parade was cancelled.
