Pirate theme for Los Cristianos 2018 Carnival
Pirates will be invading Los Cristianos next spring but it’s all in the interests of carnival fun.
Arona’s international fiesta will hit the streets between March 1st and 12th and will recreate the days of piracy in the Canaries with a world of adventure and hidden treasures.
This year, the main carnival parade, known as the Coso, attracted around 30,000 people and 2018 will be no exception.
The full programme will be announced on dates closer to the celebration. However, the carnival already has its official poster, a work created by Luis Marrero which was unveiled at the World Travel Market in London. The designer says he has tried to give a carnival spirit to the chosen theme for this edition, with a treasure map hidden in the bay of Los Cristianos and a skull island.
