Carnival is not only about massive colourful floats, dancing and extravagant parties. When I think about Carnival, even though I am not a fan, what comes to mind is the workforce behind this festival. the people who voluntarily dedicate so much time to prepare for these couple of days to see the smiles on children’s faces.

Two persons who have for sure dedicated a lot fo time to something Carnival related, were Marvic and Chris Aquilina from ‘Deheb Carnival Company’. Their hard work produced a Carnival costume that has made it to the Malta book of records.

Marvic and Chris Aquilina from ‘Deheb Carnival Company’ will be rewarded today, Sunday in front of the Court during the parade in Valletta. If you are going to be in Valletta, we encourage you to be there for the presentation! Best wishes to Marvic and Chris! Well done!
