Seventeen candidates took part in the contest, with performances by various choreographic groups giving shape to a lively and fun musical gala for the whole family.

Five Canarian sea creatures presenting the gala

The event was directed by Enrique Camacho and five Canarian sea creatures were in charge of conducting the gala, where they sent an important message to the little ones: the care of our seas. Singer Nerea, contestant of Operación Triunfo, was the guest artist.

The ceremony lasted approximately two hours and ended with the coronation of the new Junior Queen of the festival and her six ladies-in-waiting, under the charge of the mayor of the city, José Manuel Bermúdez, and the councilor of Fiestas, Gladis de León.

The jury was formed by Víctor Jaubert, Canarian illustrator; Carmen Asencio Cruz, specialist in film characterization; Dácil Travieso, professor of fashion studies; Anatael Pérez Hernández, art director; Beatriz de la Rosa, textile designer; José Juan Rolo, journalist for Radio Club Tenerife-CADENA SER; Joel Angelino, theater director; Patricia Hodgson Ravina, graduate in fine arts; María del Pilar Giménez González, industrial designer; Humberto Chávez Méndez, graduate in Fine Arts and Rubén Lima, artist and fashion stylist.

Televisión Canaria broadcast the show live for the entire archipelago. There's a snippet of video announcing the winner below, but if you want to see the whole gala, it's here.
