The Show WILL Go On!

Even the strongest Calima for two decades,
and the current world health issues,
could not prevent Santa Cruz from celebrating Carnaval 2020.

As this is such a momentous occasion in Tenerife’s annual calendar of
events we wanted to share some photographs* of the spectacular
costumes and celebrations which took place.

* Most photos have been kindly provided by “Carnaval de Santa Cruz de Tenerife”
in conjunction with the Ayuntamiento de Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

Fancy Dress is Obligatory …. Definitely Not Optional!

You are Never Too Old for Carnaval …. or Too Young!

But the Star of the Show has got to be “La Reina del Carnaval”
(The Carnival Queen)

The Streets are Jam Packed with Colour, Sounds & Festivities ……
Day & Night!

It isn’t just in the Streets … there are Indoor Shows aswell!

Everything is Brought to a Close with The Funeral of the Sardine!

And then the True Heroes of the Carnaval take over ….
The Cleaners!!
