Carnaval Queen in Santa Cruz 2015



In last night's gala, Adtemexi Cruz Hernández was elected Carnival Queen of Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2015 with a costume entitled 'Aurea', designed by Jorge González Santana. The new queen is sponsored by Fuente Alta bottled water brand and the association 'Tu Santa Cruz'.

Not everyone is enthusiastic about this whole carnaval spectacle, as comments on this report from Diario de Avisos reveal, calling it outdated and "Rubbish. Opium for the people. Mindless entertainment. Show maintained by corrupt politicians so that the people do not take care of other things. Media garbage."

Even if that is so, I feel that the world would be a so much less colourful place without it.

Reports in Spanish:
- Adtemexi Cruz Hernández, Reina del Carnaval de Santa Cruz de Tenerife
- Adtemexi Cruz Hernández, nueva Reina del Carnaval de Santa Cruz de Tenerife
- ¡Santa Cruz de Tenerife ya tiene Reina del Carnaval!
