Something for surf dudes and the kids this weekend with Volcom’s Totally Crustaceous Tour (TCT) at Punta Hidalgo on Tenerife's north east coast.

Meanwhile, in Candelaria their carnival should reach it's climax this weekend with the Main Parade from 7:30pm this evening, Friday, 26th February. And on Sunday, 28th February, they have their Carnaval de Día starting at 11 am and Entierro de la Sardina (Burial of the Sardine) from 7 pm from the Plaza de la Patrona de Canarias.

Whilst in Buenavista del Norte on Saturday, 27th February they're holding their first Carrera Nocturna Parkinson Tenerife (Nocturnal Race in aid of Parkinson's Disease), starting from the Plaza de los Remedios. Inscription has already ended, but I'm sure both the worthy cause and the runners themselves would be grateful for any support.
