Government garages at Marsa will be replaced by the Carnival Village

The Marsa Carnival Village will enter its second phase with the demolition of Government garages. This follows an agreement achieved by the Ministry for Culture and the Ministry for Capital Projects for the garages to be relocated in Kordin. Minister Owen Bonnici said the Carnival Village should be completed by the end of the coming year.

The agreement reached between Ministers Owen Bonnici and Ian Borg provides that the garages that employ about 80 persons in various trades will relocate their activities to Kordin. Their demolition will provide the space needed for the project long-awaited by Carnival enthusiasts.

Minister Bonnici said the project will continue to strengthen the country’s cultural infrastructure because the Village will provide various facilities not only just for Carnival enthusiasts.

Annabelle Stivala, the Director of Festivals Malta, said this massive project will satisfy awaited aspects, particularly for Carnival enthusiasts.

She said the project is highly important because participants will have a state-of-the-art location where they may appreciate their creations not only during Carnival but throughout the year.

The Village involves an investment of €5 million and will have 18 large warehouses and eight smaller warehouses as well as an interactive museum relating the history of the Carnival. It will also have an orientation area and a cafeteria. Minister Bonnici said the project is due for completion by the end of next year.
