Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival 2018

Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2018, Carmen Laura Lourido Pérez

Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2018 was Carmen Laura Lourido Pérez, with a costume entitled "Renacida" (Reborn), designed by Jorge González Santana and representing FuenteAlta (bottled water).

In 2018, the court was made up as follows:

  1. First Maid of Honour was Rocío Díaz Medina, with a costume entitled 'Belice' (Belize), designed by Santi Castro and representing Centro Comercial Añaza-Carrefour.
  2. Second Maid of Honour was Ana Deisy Sabina García, with a costume entitled 'El secreto del firmamento' (The secret of the firmament), designed by Eduardo Martín and representing Centro Comercial Alcampo La Laguna.
  3. Third Maid of Honour was Rosalía Barreto Suárez, with a costume entitled 'El Reino de los Trece Témpanos' (The Kingdom of the Thirteen Icebergs), designed by Daniel Pages and representing McDonald's and newspaper, La Opinión de Tenerife.
  4. And Fourth Maid of Honour was Cathaysa Machado Hernández, with a costume entitled 'Yo disco, yo robot' (I disco, I robot), designed by Borja Abreu and representing rum producer, Ron La Indiana.
The theme of Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival in 2018 was "La Fantasía" (Fantasy). For the first time in the history of carnival, three women acted as masters of ceremony at the queen's gala: Laura Afonso, from Canarias Radio; Eloísa González, from Televisión Canaria, and Berta Collado, who has been linked to Antena 3, Cuatro and La Sexta. 

The stage was the largest built in the International Centre for Trade Fairs and Congresses with more than 2,100 square meters. The gala began with the projection on the screens of a child who had found a book in an enchanted forest and lifted it from between the seats in the audience to the carnival stage. The common thread of the introduction to the gala recreated a story, with projections of fairies, enchanted trees, unicorns, a waterfall of fire and a great virtual dragon, among other fantastic elements. 

Saida Prieto was able to parade as a candidate in the gala, something, that in 2013, she could not do, due to the near fatal accident that caused her costume to catch fire. 

During this year new records were registered, with the participation of more than one million people and 12 million citizens who visited the official profiles of the carnival on social networks. Likewise, 50 million viewers at some point saw the retransmissions of the main events of the Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival through the various television channels.
