Senior Carnaval Queen Gala in Santa Cruz 2016



Tonight sees the big gala for the selection of this year's carnaval queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, which will be the finale of the contests to choose the running order of participants of carnaval, however, tonight's winner isn't the only queen elected at each year's carnaval as there are the junior and senior carnaval queens chosen too. Here is a recording of the gala that selected this year's senior carnaval queen, which took place last Wednesday, January 27th, also at the International Fairs and Congress Centre.

This also gives you a preview of this year's staging and scenery for the 1980's theme.

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.
