Los Gigantes Carnaval 2016

UPDATED: New Dates for Los Gigantes Carnival 2016

If you can't wait for Los Cristianos' carnaval in March, then a trip up the coast to Los Gigantes might well be the answer for you, with the dates for Los Gigantes Carnaval 2016 confirmed for the 19th to the 22nd February.

The “any year” program for Los Gigantes Carnaval events follows (roughly) the following format: 
  • Friday: Election of the Queens
  • Saturday: Kid’s activities
  • Sunday: Main parade from 5pm
  • Monday: Burial of the Sardine from 9pm

The theme, for any of you contemplating going along (you don't have to follow it), in Los Gigantes this year is Urban Tribes. If you already identify as part of any given subculture, then it's probably a "come as you are" party, but for those of you who need some inspiration, here's a handy list (in Spanish).
