La Carnaval - Cabalgata - Puerto de la Cruz

Ahora La Carnaval en Puerto de la Cruz en Tenerife.

The carnival coincides with Shrove Tuesday, Pancakes Day.

On Wednesday, Miércoles, Funeral of the Sardine, Entierra de Sardina, when an effigy of a sardine is carried through the town then burnt in the harbour. The women all dress in black, faces white, carrying a pose of white flowers.

On the same day, at mass at the Catholic Church, foreheads are daubed in the shape of a cross with ash from burnt palm leaves.

Ash Wednesday

Saturday, Sabado, the grand carnival parade, Cabalgata.

The parade lasts for hours, dancing, floats, the theme this year, if there was a theme, hippies in the 1960s.

At night live music until 4am.

Amazing Saturay night, gone midnight, a girl, maybe five years old, had climbed up onto the main stage and was dancing. She was a very good dancer.
