In my previous article I wrote about how summer is approaching and the struggle we are finding to get in our shorts etc etc Summertime Sadness..but with the Nutella fest around the corner I had to take some drastic decision and, I decided to go…
This year the Nutella fest was held during the weekend of the 20th to the 22nd May 2016 and was in aid of Inspire. Inspire is a foundation based in Malta, its aim is to help people, from children to adults with various disabilities overcome learning difficulties, by offering help to these people and also to their closed relatives.
The event was held in Mdina Ditch. In 2013 this ditch was transformed into an accessible public garden and it separates Mdina (the silent city) from Rabat.
So we decided to visit this event on its first day that is the 20th. Although near the entrances of this garden there were Inspire volunteers with donation boxes, the event was free. There were lots of stands not related to Nutella like jewelry stands, candles stands and also a toys stand.
The team, also thought about children and as soon as we entered we found a stand for children to do crafts. This stand was really amazing, children were given a card that was a sticker and they had to color it with different sand. The final result was superb.
The Nutella stands were to die for; the selection that they offered was splendid; cakes, muffins, crepes, pancakes. Everything you can imagine, prices weren’t out of reach. For a piece of cake we had to pay 2Euros.
Apart from that there were also some food stands, which served pizza, burgers and fries and also stands that served fresh smoothies.
A very cool thing was this photo booth that was only 2 euros..it takes about six photos and the money goes in aid of Inspire.
There was also this girl who was making handmade jewelry, like bracelets, necklaces, bookmarks and also key chains. Apart from being talented she is very outgoing and bubbly. Needless to say her work is amazing and prices are very affordable. Check her out on Facebook: Maria Handmade Creations
In the end, it was worth it; great idea, affordable prices and an event for all ages. Well Done
