Daytime Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife



One of the biggest events of carnival in recent years has been the addition of the Carnaval de Día (Daytime Carnival), which this year, once more is taking place on two dates: today, Sunday 26th February and again on Saturday, 4th March. Here's a sampling from last year when more than 200,000 people congregated in the streets of Santa Cruz for the event.

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.
