Dates of Tenerife Carnaval 2009

Carnival 2009 in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

After some pretty heavy rain, the wind dropped, the sun came out, the weather alert ended and, as was hoped, thankfully, the unusually strong winter storms this weekend mostly stayed north and passed Tenerife without incident. Meanwhile, this weekend, on Sunday, February 17th, both carnival parades on the south of the island, in Los Cristianos and Los Gigantes, were able to go ahead as planned, with plenty of blue sky and bare flesh in evidence, but for Santa Cruz it's all over until next year:

Dates of Tenerife Carnaval 2009

  • Santa Cruz main parade on Shrove Tuesday, February 24th, 2009.
  • The Burial of the Sardine on Wednesday, February 25th, 2009
  • The final weekend, therefore falling on February 28th, 2009, when Santa Cruz Carnaval ends, Puerto de la Cruz holds their main, closing parade and when the whole thing moves south.

(Always providing that the authorities don't alter the dates or that the weather doesn't, but we can't be held responsible for these outside issues.)

I could see a little snow on the very top of Teide from La Palma, but I was surprised not to see more. It had gone by the next day though.

Andrea says that there has been a little bit of snow up there - that she can see from Puerto - pretty much since Christmas. She also says that snow is forecast for tonight (it's cold enough here), but I agree, I was expecting more, especially from those recent storms.
