The most special edition of Puerto de la Cruz Carnival is celebrated this year online

International Carnival 2021 in Puerto de la Cruz

Puerto de la Cruz programs a winter carnival and hopes for the Summer Carnival

The Festivities and Heritage area of ​​the Puerto de la Cruz City Council has organized the most special edition of a carnival that will take place on social networks with some online parties where the carnival groups have the opportunity to show their work that this year has been restricted by the strict measures caused by the health crisis. The city maintains the hopes that its Summer Carnival can be held in September.

The program of festivities began last Saturday the 6th with the broadcast of XXVIII edition of the northern murgas contest held in the city in February 2020 and the entire program will be extended with the events of the year 2020 until Sunday February 21.

The opening ceremony of the carnival will be broadcast through YouTube and the social networks of the City Council this Friday, February 12, in addition to the presentation on Sunday, February 14 of the virtual costume contest, open to the participation of all citizens of Puerto. Another of the events that will be broadcast on social networks will be the presentation of carnival candidates on Friday, February 19.

Starting on Tuesday, February 16, at Castillo San Felipe, the exhibition ‘Talento de nuestro carnaval' (Talent of our carnival) will be inaugurated, in which the art behind all the creations of the carnival will be shared. "We are very proud of our designers and we want to recognize that talent that in turn employs many families and that this year they do not have that opportunity to upload their creations to a stage to the admiration of all."

Another date indicated in the calendar is the Friday of the ‘Mascarita ponte tacón' (High Heels Marathon), an unique event that usually brings together thousands of people in the streets of Puerto. "This year will be the year to remember it ..." In other words, it isn't taking place, but the inference may be that past edition(s) will be broadcast instead.

For the piñata weekend (20/21 Feb), the City Council and its Commerce area in collaboration with the city's catering sector prepares 'Aquí huele a carnaval' (Here it smells like carnival) inviting citizens to put on their best costumes and enjoy special carnival menus in the bars and restaurants of the municipality. "We want to help the sector, very damaged by the crisis, by offering an opportunity to nod towards the carnival".
