Las Vegas arrives in Los Cristianos for Carnival celebrations
Las Vegas will be arriving in Los Cristianos from March 17th to March 27th, courtesy of the 2017 Carnival theme.
A full programme of colourful events has once again been arranged with an international flavour, aimed at all ages, all nationalities and visitors and local people alike.
