Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival 2014

Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2014, Amanda Perdomo San Juan

Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2014 was Amanda Perdomo San Juan, in a costume entitled “Poderosa Amazona” (Powerful Amazon), designed by Daniel Pages and representing McDonald´s and newspaper, La Opinión de Tenerife.

In 2014, the court was made up as follows:

  1. 1st Maid of Honour: Rocío Benítez Pérez, with a costume entitled "Mi Gran Noche" (My Big Night), representing Asecu and Radio Club Tenerife and designed by Santi Castro.
  2. 2nd Maid of Honour: Yolanda Mendoza Reyes, with a costume entitled "La esencia de Santa Cruz" (The Essence of Santa Cruz), representing Crearte and designed by Daniel Pagés.
  3. 3rd Maid of Honour: Noemí Hormiga Almenara, with a costume entitled "Samba", representing the Federación Canaria del Ocio (Canarian Leisure Federation) (Fecao) and designed by Jorge González.
  4. 4th Maid of Honour: Gara Ramos González, with a costume entitled "La joya de la Corona" (Crown Jewel), representing Academia Modas Mayjo de Tacoronte (Mayjo Fashion Academy) and Ferrretería Chávez de Guamasa and designed by Expedita Hernández and Rodrigo Piñeiro.

The theme of Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival in 2014 was "Cartoons". It was the first year that the carnival poster was voted on by the public, although there was controversy due to various voting problems and, in fact, the results were annulled and the organizers of the contest were the ones who finally decided the winner. 

The stage once again used an LED screen, although the one used this year, brought from Belgium, had a wraparound effect, which made it look older. A second screen was also incorporated, which showed, in addition to the names of the groups that performed and scenes from the carnival itself, some cartoons made for the occasion, including a 3D robot similar to EVA, from the movie WALL-E

Due to the problems of the gala the previous year, the stage was prepared with greater security. The gala began with a singer dressed as Cinderella descending from a carriage and singing a carnival version of a song from the film. The opening basically consisted of songs altered for the occasion. After this, a tribute was made to "The Little Mermaid", Jessica Rabbit, from "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?", The Pink Panther, Inspector Gadget, the animated series of Barbie; Tadeo Jones, from "The Adventures of Tadeo Jones" and the Familia Telerin (a Spanish-Mexican preschool animated television series). 

After this, Snow White's stepmother asked if she was the most beautiful queen of the carnival, being she answered with a resounding no, since during the gala a more beautiful and kind queen would be chosen. Accompanying her were various animated villains, such as the joker. The evil characters dispersed as the lovable protagonists of "Monster High" entered the scene. Then characters from Warner Bros and Hanna Barbera entered, such as Silvester, Tweety and Scooby Doo, to the tune of "Merry Melodies". They were followed by the characters from "The Flintstones". When they left the stage, the film "Rio" was honoured to the rhythm of a samba from the film itself. This initial act ended with a tribute to "The Lion King" performed by singer and actor Tenaro Rodríguez.
