Corpus Christi, Tajinaste Walk, Seven Hours of Salsa and Volunteer for the Oceans

Corpus Christi Carpet

This weekend on both Saturday 6th June and Sunday 7th June, Corpus Christi is being celebrated in the municipality of Santiago del Teide, with 15 of the traditional ephemeral carpets being made by various associations and volunteers, in various parts of the district; in the plazas of Santiago del Teide, Tamaimo, Arguayo and around the church in Puerto de Santiago. The same is happening in Adeje, where work on these carpets made of coloured salt begins at 5pm on Saturday 6th June and carries on through the night and into Sunday. Make sure you see them before the procession, which follows the 6pm mass, destroys them forever.

On Saturday 6th June, starting at 8am, in  Las Cañadas del Teide is a Ruta del Tajinaste (Tajinaste Walk) to see the tajinastes in flower. Echium wildpretii is a species of flowering plant in the family Boraginaceae. It is an herbaceous biennial plant that grows up to 3 m (10 ft) in height. The nominal subspecies is endemic to the island of Tenerife, and is found mainly in Las Cañadas del Teide. And whether you join the organised walk or not, this does mean it's currently its flowering season.

For Saturday night, you could do a lot worse than the III Festival Latino 2015 in La Laguna. With free entrance, you get seven hours of salsa music and dancing from 9pm in the Plaza del Cristo.

Sunday 7th June is Día Mundial de los Océanos (World Oceans Day) and in Puerto de Santiago they're celebrating it by cleaning up the sea front and seabed at Playa Chica, a very worthwhile activity for which you can volunteer your time. Those who wish to participate simply need to turn up on the beach at 10:30am. After work, participants will enjoy a well deserved lunch and various activities, games and chats.

All events are liable to change beyond our control.
