Bethlehem f’Ghajnsielem Opening Dates and Hours of Animation
The eight edition of this event continues to strengthen the reproduction of the greatest story ever told through several attractions including the carpenter and blacksmith’s dwellings, the bakery, an open-air market selling seasonal fruits, fish and a wide selection of vegetables, a local crafts area promoting traditional skills and folklore, a tavern, a farmhouse with panoramic roof and the Bethlehem Inn.
Children will have the opportunity to learn about Maltese folklore or try one of the several ‘hands-on’ tools while families can enjoy the unique surroundings of the Maltese countryside or try some local savoury. Visitors can also cross a rope bridge to take a trip along the river on a Maltese boat. The main attraction certainly remians the grotto, with baby Jesus in the caring hands of Mary assisted by Joseph with a donkey and a cow close by.
Bethlehem f’Ghajnsielem is situated just 5 minutes walk from Imgarr Harbour terminal. Public transport is also available. Bethlehem f’ Ghajnsielem will close on Sunday 8th January with the ‘Adoration of the Magi’. The three kings will depart from a yet-to-be announced location a few days earlier before making the triumpah entrance on horseback late in the afternoon to pay homage to the Baby Jesus.
