Daytime Carnival, the penultimate day of carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Daytime Carnival in the Plaza de la Candelaria on Piñata Saturday 2020

The second of the Daytime Carnival events that usually takes place on the first Saturday of Lent, should have taken place today, Saturday 20 February 2021, but of course, because of the COVID pandemic, will not do so. This event, the penultimate day of carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, usually draws the largest crowds with the biggest international artistsThis 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).

Today, 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.
