Summer Carnival In Puerto de la Cruz

Summer Carnival Poster
Thanks to Jack Montgomery for the head's up on this brand new event taking place in Puerto de la Cruz this year over the weekend of 16th, 17th and 18th September 2016: the Carnaval de Verano (Summer Carnival).

The idea behind the event is to provide a taster to tourists, visitors and folk from other parts of the islands, so they can discover what they would see even more of if they come to the carnival proper next  February.

Summer Carnival Programme of events:

Friday, 16th September 2016:

Inauguration of the event takes place at the Loro Parque at mid-day, along with the selection of the poster for the 2017 Carnival. At 4pm, there will be an exhibition of carnival costumes in the hotels Tenerife Playa, Valle Mar and Las Vegas, together with a carnival procession. The day will be completed with dancing in the Plaza de Europa from 9pm. 

Saturday, 17th September 2016:

From 11am in the area of San Telmo and the Avenida Colón, will be workshops in salsa and carnival make-up, accompanied by an orchestra and a DJ. At 6pm in the Martiánez area there will be performances by the choreographed dance troops. From 8pm there will be a sampling of the now infamous Mascarita Ponte Tacón (Men's High Heels Marathon) from the Avenida Colón to the Plaza de Europa. And from 10pm there will be a Fiesta del Flotador, which is a completely new event that's going to be a total surprise.

Sunday, 18th September 2016:

For the last day of this Summer Carnival, from 11am there will be kiddies activities in the
Avenida Colón, which will be complimented by a DJ performance in the Plaza de Europa. From 4pm is the trademark Carnaval Cavalcade leaving from the Avenida Colón and terminating in the Plaza de Europa, where, from 8pm, is La Chalana in concert.
