Feature Carnival

Tenerife prepares for Bollywood style Carnival

Tenerife is getting ready for the return of one of the world’s largest festivals in February. From 6th to 17th February, the Tenerife Carnival will take over the largest Canary Island for a week of celebrations.

The carnival, known to most as the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, attracts people from all over the world every year. It is considered the second largest festival of its kind, with the Rio de Janeiro Carnival in Brazil being the largest.

This year the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife will have a Bollywood theme, after 42 per cent of the island’s residents chose the Indian film industry as the main inspiration for the festivals scenery and costumes for 2013. Festivities won’t just take place in the island’s Capital of Santa Cruz, up and down Tenerife celebrations and parades will be held with the second biggest parties being held in Puerto de la Cruz.

The Tenerife Carnival kicks off with the Carnival Queen Election Gala, where the Queen of the Carnival is elected.  The event is broadcast to the whole country, as well as abroad, and includes a parade of candidates for Queen walking across a stage. A jury made up of people of importance and celebrities then decide who will be crowned Queen and the mayor then hand the sceptre to the winner.

Other events during Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife include the Announcement Parade, a march through the city announcing the arrival of Carnival, Carnival Saturday, a day completely dedicated to dance, Lunes de Carnaval, a day of feasting followed by an electronic-music event at night and the Grand Finale, where floats, decorated cars and the Carnival Queen all gather to celebrate the end of Carnival.
