Carnaval de Día (Daytime Carnaval) 2019

Carnaval de Día (Daytime Carnaval) in the Plaza de la Candelaria on Sunday 3 March 2019

Carnaval de Día (Daytime Carnaval) was a concept introduced into the carnival celebrations in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2008, first as one event each year and later with two. These have altered the ambience of carnival - for the better - to make it much more of a family-orientated event. We went to the first Daytime Carnival on Sunday, 3 March 2019. Great day for people watching.

The done thing is for couples to wear the same outfit. Of course.

Even the dog is in theme. Groups of friends have matching outfits. 

Whole families dress alike.

Even the buggy gets dressed up
