We can promise you a crazy night on Friday 8 March 2019 with the Mascarita ponte el Tacón (Men's High Heels Marathon). This is certainly the most fun event of carnival in Puerto de la Cruz, where blokes in drag navigate the cobbled streets of the town and added obstacles in high heels that must be at least 15cm high. Last year, the race began at 10pm with 441 participants.
