Entierro de la Sardina - Burial of the Sardine

Sardine on the way to it's cremation 2020

Today, Ash Wednesday, 17 February 2021, should be the date of the blasphemous and surreal - but very fun - Entierro de la Sardina (Burial of the Sardine), but of course, because of the COVID pandemic, carnival will not be taking place. This year virtual carnival events take place between 17 February and 7 March, culminating in a television gala, ‘Santa Cruz, Corazón del Carnaval’ (Santa Cruz, Heart of Carnival). 

We can merely bring you coverage of this event from last year. This is one in a series of posts that aim to keep the spirit of carnival alive. Or keep the flame burning, so the torch can be passed to the next carnival, whenever we can get back to gathering normally.
