Santa Cruz de Tenerife chooses its Guardians of the Sceptre until the 2022 edition

Senior, Adult and Junior Guardians of the Sceptre

Santa Cruz de Tenerife last night chose its three Guardians of the Sceptre: Naomi María Cabrera Pulido represents the adult queens, after obtaining 18% of the vote in her category; Antonia Garrido Francés represents the senior queens, having gained 26% of the vote and Ylenia Rodríguez Domínguez was the clear winner in the junior category with a huge 49% of the vote in her category. After two and a half hours of the television show Santa Cruz Corazón del Carnaval, Laura Afonso and Alexis Hernández proclaimed the former carnival queens who obtained the greatest popular support, as guardians. The three make up the team who will guard the sceptre of the capital's carnival until the 2022 edition.

The Senior, Junior and Adult Guardians as they had appeared as Queens in 2019 and 2011

Naomi María Cabrera Pulido had been proclaimed queen in 2011, on that occasion with a costume entitled "Cien años de historia" (One Hundred Years of History), designed by Leo Martínez and representing newspaper El Día. Yesterday, she wore a creation by Alexis Santana, entitled "Volver a vivir" (Relive), representing Urbaser.

Senior guardian, Antonia Garrido Francés, and junior guardian, Ylenia Rodríguez Domínguez, had both been crowned queen in their respective categories in 2019. 

Antonia Garrido Francés, then with a costume entitled "Soy Fortuna" (I'm Fortuna), designed by Antonio Santos Arteaga, representing Bingo Canarias and Bingo Ciudad Laguna. As guardian, her costume is entitled, "Aroma a Venecia" (Scent of Venice), designed by Arganda de la Rosa, representing the town council of Los Realejos

Ylenia Rodíguez Domíngez who was crowned Junior Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz 2019 with a costume entitled “Entre el pasado y el presente” (Between the past and the present), designed by Santi Castro and representing children's boutique La Princesa y el Peis, in 2021 was dressed in a costume entitled "Historias reales" (Royal Histories), designed by Ángel González and representing Boutique infantil Erilau.

Guardians of the Sceptre with Mayor of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, José Manuel Bermúdez, Councillor of Fiestas, Alfonso Cabello, and current queens, Sara Cruz Teja, Consuelo Pérez Arbelo and Violeta García

Mayor of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, José Manuel Bermúdez, accompanied by Councillor of Fiestas, Alfonso Cabello, and the three current queens, Sara Cruz TejaConsuelo Pérez Arbelo and Violeta García, went onto the stage to congratulate the court of guardians.

The ‘Santa Cruz, Corazón del Carnaval’ (Santa Cruz, Heart of Carnival) show marked the closing of the Virtual Carnival 2021, an edition marked by the adaptation of the usual programming to formats that guaranteed the event with current health security measures.

The gala, which concluded with a heartfelt tribute to the Honorary Queen of the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife since 2004, Celia Cruz, was punctuated by many musical performances among which the presence of the Mexican singer Carlos Rivera stands out, who together with more than thirty Canarian artists and representatives of the different Tenerife carnival groups, contributed a soundtrack full of nostalgia and hope in equal parts.

The twenty queens wore costumes adapted to the current edition, with reduced dimensions, the lack of wheels and the absence of support personnel during the parade.
