Carnival in Los Gigantes 2020

Los Gigantes Carnival 2020

The theme of Los Gigantes Carnival 2020, which takes place between 6 March and 14 March, is Las mil y una noches (One Thousand and One Nights), (coincidentally, the theme in Santa Cruz 25 years ago), so you can submerge yourself in the story of Sherezade or the adventures of Aladin and his magic lamp. Mayor of Santiago del Teide, Emilio Navarro, has today presented the program for the fiestas, saying that, "Every year we try to improve different aspects of our carnival and integrate different groups." Among measures being introduced this year are: areas in the square during the galas so that people with disabilities can enjoy it; sign language interpreters; information on gender-based violence, a commitment to sustainability with refillable cups made of recycled material and controlled fireworks to avoid loud noises and big shocks.
