Tenerife Carnival contests begin this week

Part of the design for the carnival scenery in 2020

This week, the contests to choose not just the best of this year's carnival participants, but also the order in which they will parade once the carnival takes to the streets next month, begin at the The Tenerife International Centre for Trade Fairs and Congresses.

The first phase of the children's murgas will take place tomorrow, Thursday January 30; the second phase on Friday January 31 and the third phase on Saturday February 1.

After them will come the Festival of Coreographed Groups on Sunday February 2 and the first phase of the adult murgas takes place on Monday February 3, followed, on Tuesday, 4 February by the 2nd Phase of the Adult Murga Contest and on Wednesday, 5 February with the 3rd Phase of the Adult Murga Contest. (Links go to coverage of last year's corresponding event for an idea of what's involved.)
