Carnival Opening Parade in Santa Cruz, Friday, 5th February
Now that the carnival queen for this year has been chosen (see more images here), tomorrow night, Friday, February 5th, carnaval takes to the streets with the Cabalgata Anunciadora (Opening Parade). Get your legwarmers on and get down there. The procession starts from 8pm from the Plaza de la República Dominicana and passes through the Avenida de la Asunción, Ramón y Cajal, Galcerán, Plaza de Weyler, Méndez Núñez, Pilar, Villalba Hervás, La Marina and ends on the Avenida Francisco La Roche.
Here's a quick look at last year's to set the scene.
