Senior Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz 2019

Antonia Garrido Francés, the new Senior Carnival Queen 2019

Antonia Garrido Francés was chosen last evening as Senior Carnival Queen of Santa Cruz 2019, during the gala held in the Centro Internacional de Ferias y Congresos de Tenerife (Tenerife International Trade Fair and Conference Centre), in which 9 candidates took part. In a costume entitled "Soy Fortuna" (I'm Fortuna), designed by Antonio Santos Arteaga, the winner represents Bingo Canarias and Bingo Ciudad Laguna.

Her court was completed, in this order, by Juana González Vargas, with the fantasy "Vuela Guajira" (Fly Guajira), designed by the Carnival Association Nira-Armony de la Rosa, representing the Council of Los Realejos; Ana María Gómez Aguilar, with the fantasy "Mumtaz Mahal", designed by Víctor Mesa Aguilar on behalf of DMB Peluqueros; María Dolores Miranda Pérez, with the fantasy "Castilla" (Castile), designed by Alexis Santana Rodríguez, representing the Santa Úrsula Open Shopping Area, and Concepción Rodríguez González, with the fantasy “Bajo la luna del Nilo” (Under the Moon of the Nile), designed by Jonathan Suárez López, on behalf of Gabinete de Estética Africa y Vicky.

The mayor of Santa Cruz, José Manuel Bermúdez, handed the scepter to the new Queen, while the president of the Island Council, Carlos Alonso, and the councilor of Fiestas, Gladis de León, presented the prizes to the matrons of honour.

More than 4,000 spectators gathered to witness the show, which lasted two hours and forty-five minutes. Under the direction of Enrique Camacho and presented by the actress Yanely Hernández, the gala featured musical performances by Pepe Benavente, Luis de Seda and Luis Alberto del Caribe. The lineup was completed by humorist Juanito Panchín.

The Senior Carnival Queen of Santa Cruz 2019 was chosen by a jury made up of Soraya García Hernández, Ansina program technician; Tere Afonso, announcer; Luis Dávila, designer of the Carnival and Lito Mesa, journalist.

Televisión Canaria retransmitted the show, live, for the entire archipelago.
