Junior Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz 2019

Ylenia Rodríguez Domínguez, Reina Infantil del Carnaval 2019

Santa Cruz de Tenerife has elected the first of its three carnival queens this year, as Ylenia Rodríguez Domínguez, was chosen as Reina Infantil del Carnaval 2019 (Junior Carnival Queen 2019) at last night's gala held at the Centro Internacional de Ferias y Congresos de Tenerife (Tenerife International Trade Fair and Conference Centre).

Her costume entitled “Entre el pasado y el presente” (Between the past and the present), was designed by Santi Castro, representing children's boutique La Princesa y el Peis.

The six ladies-in-waiting who form her court are, in order:

  1. First lady-in-waiting, Aroa García Abreu, with the fantasy “En busca de la esencia del Carnaval” (In search of the essence of Carnival), designed by Eduardo Martín and representing Club Rik-Rok and Alcampo La Laguna
  2. Second lady-in-waiting, Oriana Cabrera Lorenzo, with the fantasy “Jugando en el 92…llegué a la meta final” "Playing in 92 ... I reached the final goal" by Alexis Santana and representing constructions and reforms Eliazar Jesús and Repsol Palo Blanco.
  3. The third lady-in-waiting was Karen Irene Acosta Almenara, with the fantasy "La que ama a su isla" (She who loves her island) with a Daniel Pages design and representing Carrefour and AA.VV. La Era y el Trigo.
  4. Fourth lady-in-waiting is Ithaysa Delgado Aguilar, with the fantasy “Pim Pam Pum ¿Esto lo recuerdas tú?” (Pim Pam Pum Do you remember this?) designed by Cristián Santana and representing the Council of Güímar, Bar Parada, Radio 6 Tenerife and autobar and goodies La Familia.
  5. Cynthia Gazmira Cubas Padilla was elected fifth lady-in-waiting, with the fantasy “¿Quieres bailar conmigo?” (Do you want to dance with me?), designed by Jonathan Suárez and representing electricity and reforms Hernández Padilla SL.
  6. While Adriana García Cedrés completed the court as sixth lady-in-waiting, with the fantasy "Coloreando el Cielo" (Colouring the sky), by Ruymán Pérez Jorge and representing Plus Hogar Tenerife.

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.
