Tenerife, the best Carnaval in the World

Those of us who live in Tenerife already knew this, of course, but the Santa Cruz Carnaval received outside confirmation of its excellence this week from the US Spanish language celebrity news and gossip magazine Fama, report ABC.

The magazine called our Carnaval "the most spectacular and safe" of all those celebrated and because it has become an important springboard for artists to launch their careers in Spain. The magazine awarded the prize to the councillor responsible for the Tenerife Carnaval, Bruno Piqué, at an event celebrated at the Betsy Ross Hotel on Ocean Drive on Miami's famous South Beach.
