Carnival 'buries' COVID and the revelries return to the streets after 2 years

LA SARDINA by iLoveTheWorld

This year's 'Burial of the Sardine According to San Juan' kicked off the most important festival in the city two and a half years after its last edition, and opens the door to a massive weekend of non-stop partying.

The Eve of San Juan was experienced this year in a very special way, as the purifying fire associated with this date coincided with the inaugural act of the Carnival in the streets of Santa Cruz: the Burial of the Sardine, or of COVID, to be more exact. The sardine was pardoned, well, at least until next year.

The night apparently passed without incident and only eight people needed assistance at the Carnival Hospital; five men and three women for various reasons. Half of those assisted required attention due to alcohol poisoning, although without major complications. One of those affected is a minor.

Thousands of people will enjoy the street dances in the capital from today.
