An illuminated pathway, Santa's grotto, a live nativity scene, sustainable Christmas crafts, food and live performances by renowned artists will turn the Salini National Park into a magical Christmas village for the third edition of Christmas in the Park.

The government said that this year's event promises a sustainable experience for the entire family, with various entities like Ambjent Malta, Project Green, WasteServ, ERA, and Circular Economy ensuring an environmentally conscious celebration with informative stalls.

"Visitors will enjoy virtual reality experience from Saving Our Blue, sustainable crafting and purchase artisanal goods, along with honey and vegan products. The event will host live performances by Sterjotipi, Claudia Faniello, Glen Vella, Lisa Gauci, Joemike and Lydon, and Tiziana Calleja together with children's choir."

Minister for the Environment, Energy and Enterprise Miriam Dalli encouraged people to attend this year's Christmas in the Park. She highlighted that: "To enable the public to appreciate open areas, we should improve accessibility and revive these spaces through sustainable activities. It is crucial to ensure that even during the festive season, we uphold our commitment to sustainability."

Minister Dalli thanked everyone who is contributing to the success of the event and urged the public to adopt sustainable practices this Christmas. This includes reusing wrapping paper, correctly separating waste, and reducing food waste, amongst others.
