Santa Cruz Carnival to turn clock back to 80s
Start planning your costumes! The theme for the 2016 Santa Cruz Carnival is going to be “The years of the 80s” which opens up endless possibilities for colour and fun.
About 5,000 people cast their vote online after the Carnival committee asked for views on what next year’s topic should be.
At one stage, it was very close between “The 80s” and “The Caribbean” but the former prevailed.
During four days, 4,920 votes were cast of which 2,384 (47 per cent) were for “The 80”. “Caribbean” came second, receiving 2,130 (42 per cent), while “The disco” retrieved had 486 votes (ten per cent of the total).
Santa Cruz councillor for fiestas, Gladis de León was pleased with the high participation and also the choice of the 80s, commenting: “It’s a topic which opens up endless possibilities for costumes and in terms of decor and scenery in the various shows, including the selection of the Carnival Queen.”
