Hundreds of beavers and dolphins, cubs and brownies, guides and scouts, ventures and rangers, rovers and senior rangers, along with their leaders and mascots, will be taking part in the Annual Scout and Guide Rally on Sunday. President Myriam Spiteri Debono will preside over the event.

The rally will be led by the associations’ Gozo districts, who will also attend the thanksgiving mass, celebrated by Bishop Joseph Galea Curmi at Floriana’s parish church at 9am. The Scout Fellowship, North District, South District and Central District will follow.

Triq Sarria will be closed for traffic by 9.30am as other Scout and Girl Guide groups start arriving in Floriana to fall-in on the Granaries and prepare for march-off at 10.45am.

The parade will proceed to the traffic junction by the Independence Monument, to pass from in front of the Phoenicia Hotel. Groups will then proceed to march around the Triton Fountain as if going towards the Valletta Football Ground. The parade will then turn right through the ramp between the planters to enter Valletta City Gate and march down Republic Street towards the presidential palace.

The president will take the salutes on the dais placed in front of the Presidential Palace at St George’s Square.

Upon marching through St George’s Square, the groups will turn right into Archbishop Street and then right again up Merchants Street. Dispersal will take place in front of Auberge de Castille and the area near St James Cavalier.
