Provisional Calendar for Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival 2018

Provisional Calendar for Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival 2018

We've published the likely dates of a few of the regular carnival events before, but here is fuller list of events of Santa Cruz Carnival in this Provisional Calendar 2018 from the official carnival organisers. Below are what the events are, in English. Times and locations, which hardly need translating, can be found at the carnival website or in the graphic above.

You will note that the main day of carnival, we know it as Shrove Tuesday, this year falls on the 13th of the month. Whether this is going to be auspicious or inauspicious, I cannot say, but in hispanic and Greek culture, instead of Friday, Tuesday the 13th (martes trece) is considered a day of bad luck. We'll cross our fingers that this time it isn't!
