Carnival is HUGE in Tenerife! If you have a fancy dress costume and are up for a good time then you’re ready to enjoy this riotous and animated celebration.
The theme for 2013 is Bollywood, and gives every opportunity for this to be the most colourful carnival (or carnaval as it is known in Spain) ever!
Programme – Santa Cruz de Tenerife:
6th February: Election of the 2013 Carnival Queen
8th February: Announcing Parade
12th February: Main Parade (4 pm)
13th February: Funeral of the Sardine
17th February: End of Carnival 2013

Carnival is celebrated in all the towns and villages in Tenerife… but if you want something truly spectacular, then head to Santa Cruz or Puerto de La Cruz
Both those areas attract people from all over the Island, and from beyond too.
