Carnvial kicks off in Arrecife at the Recinto, with the election of the Carnival Queen, Gay Carnival Queen, voting of the floats. Next is the hilarity of the solemn procession of the Burning of the Sardine, also in Arrecife.

These are followed with the Carnival parades. Starting in Arrecife, it moves to Puerto del Carmen, Teguise, Costa Teguise, Yaiza and Playa Blanca over subsequent weekends between February and March.

Each area celebrates in its own unique way, it is all very colourful, and noisy. Join in, or at least bring the camera !

2013 theme is the 60's. But really anything goes.
