Santa Cruz Carnaval Main Parade



Today, Shrove Tuesday, 17th February 2015, from around 4pm, sees the Coso Apoteosis del Carnaval, (Main Parade) along the seafront avenue in Santa Cruz and, by way of enticement, here's a short video of this parade from last year, El Coso Apoteosis del Carnaval 2014. It takes great skill indeed to condense about three-and-a-half hours of parade down to less than four-and-a-half minutes, set it to entirely the wrong sort of music and yet, still perfectly convey the flavour and emotion of carnaval, but the folks from TuSantaCruz have pulled off this minor miracle. Watch it, you'll be very glad you did.

If you wish, you can also watch the entire parade as was televised by the Canarian television. The videos come in four parts, part one, part two, part three and part four.
