More carnival capers and other events

Kids at Los Gigantes Carnival in 1995


Los Gigantes Carnival 2016

As previously reported, Los Gigantes Carnival that had to be postponed, for everyone's safety, because of the bad weather, is now taking place this weekend, starting with the Carnival Queen Gala tonight; kid's activities all day tomorrow; the Main Parade from 5 pm on Sunday, 6th March and the Burial of the Sardine on Monday evening.

Carnival in Buenavista del Norte

Buenavista del Norte posponed their carnival too with the Children's Costume Parade this afternoon, Friday, 4th March, from 5 pm in the Municipal Theatre on Calle la Alhóndiga.

The Main Carnival Parade and Costume Contest in Buenavista del Norte also takes place tonight, Friday, 4th March, from 7 pm and the blurb states that it includes "all persons or groups who wish to join in", so there's your invite! There'll be music and entertainment in the Plaza Ntra. Sra. De Los Remedios.

Buenavista lays the sardine to rest quite quickly with the Burial of the Sardine taking place on Saturday, 5th March, from 8:30 pm, but to ease the pain, there'll be dancing afterwards to Orquesta Corinto and music provided by Dj Cristo Corona.

For real carnival devotees Buenavista are also holding a Murga Contest on Sunday, 6th March, from 6 pm, again in the Municipal Theatre.

Los Cristianos Carnival Kicks Off

While Los Cristianos International Carnival 2016 also kicks off this weekend, with the presentation of the candidates for Carnival Queen tonight and several events tomorrow, Saturday, 5th March, most notably the Cabalgata Anunciadora del Carnaval (Carnival Opening Parade) in Playa de Las Américas from 7 pm and the Wig Party (Fiesta del Pelucón) from 10 pm in Los Cristianos. There will be DJs, go-go dancers and Tenerife singer, Nalaya Brown, plus a couple of thousand euros in prizes to be distributed to the best (possibly meaning most outlandish) wigs.
