Finalist for Carnival Queen in 2020

Adriana Toledo Álvarez

In 2020 there were sixteen candidates for the title of Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and, effectively, eight were eliminated and eight finalists were brought back on stage, amongst whom were the queen and her four maids of honour. This was the first time, to my knowledge, that it was done in such a manner, besides, I doubt any more than eight would fit on stage at once. This is one of the remaining three finalists, Adriana Toledo Álvarez, in a costume entitled Manana-Cananoa, designed by Juan Carlos Armas Febles and representing El gusto por el vino and Atlántico Auto Centros.

This was my favourite. The hibiscus flowers on the back of this costume are exquisite!

There will be no Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2021, although the City Council is working with the Carnival groups in the design of some activities that can maintain the spirit of the festivities during the weeks in which it should have been celebrated
