Santa Cruz de Tenerife
With over 4 months to go, “Carnaval” fever
is already hitting Tenerife.
… and deservedly so, as the second biggest carnival in the world,
after Rio de Janeiro,
and an event which attracts thousands of people from around the world,
this is the most important fiesta in Tenerife,
and the Canary Islands.
There is a theme chosen each year and the Carnaval is based around this theme. With the city decorated accordingly, the locals will be rushing around in the preceding weeks, choosing their costumes relating to the theme of the Carnaval. In recent years there has been a Caribbean theme and Fantasy theme, last year we had an Under the Sea theme and for 2020 the theme will be The Coquette 50s! .
