Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival Queen 2016

Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2016, Cecilia Navarro Arteaga

Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2016 was Cecilia Navarro Arteaga in a costume entitled, "Arena blanca del desierto" (White Desert Sand), designed by Daniel Pages and representing McDonald´s and La Opinión de Tenerife.

In 2016, the court was made up as follows:

  1. 1st Maid of Honour: Flavia Martínez Álvarez, with a costume entitled "Eva" (Eve), representing Autoinsular Citroën and designed by Daniel Pages.
  2. 2nd Maid of Honour: Priscila Medina, with "Desde Italia" (From Italy), representing Radio Club Tenerife and Centro Comercial Añaza Carrefour and designed by Santi Castro.
  3. 3rd Maid of Honour: Tamara Siverio, with "Me siento bella" (I feel beautiful), representing Grupo Fedola and designed by Alfonso Baute.
  4. 4th Maid of Honour: Estefanía García Martín, with a costume entitled "Entre el bien y el mal" (Between good and bad), representing Espectáculos Bravo and Cadena Meliá Hoteles and designed by Antonio Santos Arteaga.
The theme of Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival in 2016 was "The 80s". For the scenery, the LED screen was eliminated and the traditional papier-mache decorations were recovered (of doubtful taste), with eighties motifs including, a pseudo reproduction of a "Game Boy"; a giant cassette tape and a Playmobil doll paying homage to Freddy Mercury.
