A member of the San Pio X Musical Society in Lija said the fireworks show is to take place and is expected to start at 9.30pm. The thunderstorm that hit the Maltese islands earlier on today made it unclear whether the show would take place.

The member explained that the feast enthusiasts took all the necessary precautions to ensure that the fireworks show takes place regardless of the weather, and that no damage is done to statues. Both statues and fireworks were covered in plastic.
