Tenerife in October 2020

Spanish flag

On 12 October each year the Fiesta Nacional de España (Spanish National Day), also known as Dia de la Hispanidad (Hispanic Day) is celebrated across Spain and the Canary Islands. Since 2000, October 12 has also been Spain's Armed Forces Day, celebrated each year with a military parade in Madrid. It is a national public holidayThe king of Spain supervises the raising of the Spanish national flag in the center of Madrid on Hispanic Day. He and the prime minister lead a military parade after that. Similar celebrations usually take place in Tenerife, though this year it's unlikely there will be any public parades.
