Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival 2019

Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2019, Priscila Medina Quintero

Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2019 was Priscila Medina Quintero, with a costume entitled "La Nuit" (The Night), designed by Sedomir Rodríguez de la Sierra and representing Autoinsular Citroën.

In 2019, the court was made up as follows:

  1. 1st Maid of HonourSusana Conde Alba, with a costume entitled “Bésame” (Kiss Me), designed by Santi Castro, representing Centro Comercial Añaza-Carrefour.
  2. 2nd Maid of HonourViviane Cordobés Ramos, with a costume entitled “Mandala”, designed by Juan Carlos Armas Febles, representing Centro Comercial Alcampo La Laguna.
  3. 3rd Maid of HonourInma Afonso Darias, with a costume entitled “Llegó bailando” (Arrived Dancing), designed by Daniel Pages, representing Dimurol SL.
  4. 4th Maid of HonourRaquel Iboleón Laynez, with a costume entitled “Al alba venceré” (At dawn I will conquer), designed by Daniel Pages, representing McDonald’s and La Opinión de Tenerife.
The theme of Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2019 was "The Deep Sea". The main stage of the carnival on this occasion is presided over by a six meter high bust of Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea. This sculpture is made by Valencian Fallas masters and was transferred to the island of Tenerife from Valencia by sea along with other sets that made up the scene, such as a large wrecked ship ten meters long and six meters high. 

The six meter high bust of Poseidon was moved to the stage in the
Plaza de la Candelaria once the carnival party took to the streets.

In addition, 140 corals were moulded with striking colours, of orange, green and pink. Several films, including Finding Nemo, also served as inspiration for the sets. In total, the stage measured 15 meters and with giant screens that simulated the bottom of the sea with fish. The Queen's Election Gala was directed, once more, by Enrique Camacho. The introduction allowed the public to enter the depths of the sea, where countless aquatic animals danced among the public. The host of the gala was the journalist Laura Afonso, who throughout the event was accompanied by other presenters, including the last three carnival queens; María Rozman, Elvis Sanfiel and K-Narias. Guest artists were Carlos Baute and Marta Sánchez. The gala was broadcast live on Televisión Española and on the International Channel, as well as on Televisión Canaria

During the Daytime Carnival, the record set in 1987 with Celia Cruz was surpassed, because in 2019, local police figures estimated that more than 400,000 people danced to the rhythm of Juan Luis Guerra and with Celia Cruz there had been 250,000. This was unexpected and, due to the lack of a notary, could not be included in the Guinness Book of Records.
