Twenty-three candidates aspire to the title of Carnival Queen in Los Cristianos (Arona)

23 candidates opt for the title of Queen of the Carnival of Arona

The Infanta Leonor Auditorium dressed up for carnival to present the 23 candidates who aspire to become Queen of The Jungle (the theme of this year's carnival in Los Cristianos). The show began with the sounds of the jungle and the acrobatics of many wild animals. Vegetation and flowers took on a life of their own through dance by the various groups.

During the presentation, the batucada and comparsas of Arona, as well as the choreographic groups of the municipality, participated. The three queens of the Carnival of Arona 2018 (Senior, Infant and Adult) were also present and Drag Fresh (winner of Drag Arona 2018) was part of the show, with a stellar performance.

There are 23 candidates in all; 11 candidates in the Senior category (one for each Center for the Elderly in the municipality), six Junior and six Adult.

Sequins, glitter, dancing rhythms and a lot of animal print have made it possible for the International Carnival of Los Cristianos 2019 to begin in style. The first drums have been played. Arona marks the starting signal for the celebrations, which tonight, 22 March, will premiere on the main stage with the Comparsas Contest starting at 9:00 p.m.

The Galas for the Election of the Senior, Junior and Adult Carnival Queens and Gala Drag Queen will take place on March 26, 27, 28 and March 29.
