Carnaval Opening Parade Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2011

For my money, this is one of the best slices of Tenerife carnaval you’ll ever see, because it doesn’t just show you a parade, it lets you live the atmosphere.

You can hear the all the different sounds; the music, the batucadas of the drums and the noise of the crowd mingling together. You can also see how the public and the parade are not separated, making this a participation event, not merely a spectator sport, which, for me, is an important distinction between Tenerife’s totally accessible carnival and others where one would be a mere onlooker.
