Several locals attend the feast where the statue of the saint is carried along the streets of Għargħur. The feast includes music from local bands and several fireworks are let off during the festival. Quite a few tourists visiting the island also join in the celebrations by visiting the church and viewing the famous fireworks display. Most of the clubs and shops and village activity is happening around the area of the Church until the 1960's it is said that Gharghur village life was rather confined and many remained uneducated further than primary school, however ease of transportation has changed that. Although today Gharghur's residents have become more worldly, traditional village life is still much alive, also evident by
the large number of social clubs present in the village.
