Carnival Queen Gala Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2015



This week, on Wednesday, February 3rd, the huge Gala to elect this year's Carnaval Queen in Santa Cruz, will take place at International Fairs and Congress Centre.

Earlier information had suggested that this would take place earlier in the day, but the official program (PDF) confirms that it's from 9 pm and TelevisiónCanaria will be transmitting it live from that time as usual.

In the meantime, either to wet your appetite or so you can get up to speed on what these galas are all about, here's the entire three and a quarter hour long gala from last year.

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.
