Something for the weekend: Fiesta Feeling

Fiesta Feeling

If last week was the turn of Los Silos, this weekend sees the Fiestas for San Antionio Abad the massive gathering of domestic animals (both livestock and ever more bizarre and wonderful pets) for their annual blessing in Buenavista del Norte, which Jack Montgomery says "... is probably a better introduction for anyone who isn’t familiar with Tenerife’s fiestas." 

Sunday morning, from around 11am, is when you want to be there. Follow the crowds to the town's main square, where the processions will end in front of the church, or better yet follow those aiming for where the animals will gather first for the livestock fair.
