Santa Cruz' Monstrous Carnaval 2009

2009 Poster for Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival

Corpus Christi was only yesterday, it's still officially Spring, we haven't had summer yet, let alone autumn, or heaven forbid let's not talk about Christmas at the end of May ... And yet here they are, making plans for next February's carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife already. Surely, this is proof that the partying in Tenerife never stops?

We learn that a poster design has been chosen for the Santa Cruz Carnaval 2009, which on it's own would not be monstrous news, but the reports also tell us what the theme is to be in 2009: El cine de terror (Horror Films).

They're getting an unprecedented move on, as carnival is going to get "exterior promotion without precedents." With that prospect, we're sure the carnival will indeed be monstrous - as in huge - and you'll be in good company. (Better than being organized mañana!) It also gives you chance to book well in advance, because nearby hotels will fill up.

The poster, which was chosen from among 111 entries, is by Gonzalo Luis Álvarez Fernández and entitled "Bailarina Monstruosa" (Monstrous Dancer).

Yes, we're fully aware that the poster depicts Herman Munster in a bra and tutu, with pink wings borrowed off a Christmas angel, but believe us when we tell you that such an outfit would be considered quite conservative at carnival!

Santa Cruz' main parade is on Shrove Tuesday, February 24th, 2009.
