Los Gigantes Carnaval 1995

How fast 20 years passes since the Los Gigantes Carnaval of 1995 and I wonder what these participants, especially the kids, are doing now? Anyway, I'm posting these now as a reminder that Los Gigantes carnaval is about to start for this year, on Friday, 27th February, 2015. We've linked to Los Gigantes carnaval dates, before, but it's one that people ask about frequently, so just to make sure nobody misses it, the main carnaval parade - Coso Apoteosis - in Los Gigantes is expected to take place on Sunday, 1st March, 2015 from 5pm.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
