Carnaval in Los Cristianos, Tenerife

Carnaval in Los Cristianos

You thought that the Tenerife Carnaval was over, didn't you? Well, while it might be in Santa Cruz, for this year anyway, the party has now moved on to other spots around the island. Currently, it's the turn of Los Cristianos to host their carnaval, the theme of which is the cinematic and literary genre of emotion, tension and suspense: the thriller.

Los Cristianos Carnaval's ample program of events kicked off last Sunday with the presentation of the candidates for Carnaval Queen, who will be chosen in a gala to be held tonight, March 1, in the fair's enclosure located opposite the Valdés Center.

The old folk have their own dance from 6 p.m. tomorrow, Friday, March 2nd and, at 8.30 p.m. on the same evening will be the selection of the Junior Carnaval Queen.

On Saturday, March 3rd, at 7 p.m. is a Festival of Comparsas (dance troupes) and from 11 p.m. the dancing in the streets to various local orchestras starts.

The main Carnaval Parade in Los Cristianos is being held on Sunday, March 4th, from 4 p.m. onwards, with the procession starting from Paloma Beach and progressing along Avenida Juan Carlos I to end up at the fairs enclosure.

Finally, the traditional "Burial of the Sardine" is on Monday, March 5th, at 8 p.m., beginning at the Cultural Center and passing through the streets of Amalia Alayón, Barranquillo, Avenida de Suecia, Calle El Espigón de Benchijigua to the Los Cristianos beach. The Widows' Ball starts at 9.30 p.m.

But, if you manage to miss all of that, on Tuesday, March 6th, costumes from the carnaval will go on display in the Cultural Center and the fiestas will be brought to a close on Saturday, March 10th, with another parade of various of the carnaval groups from 5 p.m. and performances by the same groups, from 7 p.m. in the City Center shopping complex, annexed to the hotel La Siesta in Playa de Las Américas.
