Carnaval Redux: the ones that got away

Costume Mask, Tenerife, Canary Islands, SpainThe main carnaval week in Tenerife, being the equivalent of Wimbledon Fortnight in the UK – i.e. a magnet for rainy weather – has meant that once every few years in Tenerife, one or two of the events get postponed, but this does mean that there are a few things to look forward to still:

This Saturday, March 19th, at 9 p.m. in the Plaza de San Pedro in Güímar, you have another chance at getting to see a piece of carnaval street theatre called Las Burras de Güímar (The Donkeys of Güímar, where witches turn into donkeys and back again, until the Inquisition turns up and barbeques them along with a sardine), which was suspended last Friday due to the heavy rains.

Light on Tenerife, Canary Islands, SpainAnd the following weekend, we have it on authority, on Sunday, March 27th, you’ll be able to see the wonderful old classic cars gather at the Parque García Sanabria in Santa Cruz de Tenerife for their annual exhibition and outing. We assume that times are as before.
