Puerto de la Cruz' Summer Carnival 2016

Mascarita Ponte Tacón (Men's High Heels Marathon)

With Carnaval 2017 now only around a week away, you may enjoy some images and video from the parades and the Mascarita Ponte Tacón (Men's High Heels Marathon) of the Summer Carnival in Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife in September 2016.

The aim of the event was to provide a taster to tourists and other visitors of what they will see more of if they come to the carnival proper this February. In that, even the weather obliged as it was dull and cloudy throughout much of the three days!

One thing that was very un-typical of carnival in Tenerife was that none of the visitors seemed to have got the memo about dressing up. We did, because I'm used to Carnival proper, where you would definately feel really awkwardly out of place if you did NOT dress up ... only to be virtually the only two spectators (certainly tourists) in costume!
