“Casa del Carnaval” showcases more memories of yesteryear
Santa Cruz has been enriching the “Casa del Carnaval” or Carnival House with new content and more attractions.
The Mayor, José Manuel Bermúdez presented the latest contents and exhibitions of this new “museum” which is dedicated to the most popular and international festivities of the capital of Tenerife.
“Although our Carnival does not fit in any House,” the mayor acknowledged, “this space has already become the home of all carnival fans, a point of reference for those who visit us throughout the year, and also in an information centre and fundamental documentation about the Carnival.”
Sr. Bermúdez was accompanied at the inauguration of this renovation of the House by the ninth deputy mayor and councillor for Economic Promotion, Alfonso Cabello; the councillor of Fiestas, Gladis de León; the three queens of the last edition of the festivities and numerous Carnival groups.
The mayor stressed that the best reflection of the good reception of this offer is that since its inauguration more than 17,000 people have come to know and enjoy the Casa del Carnaval.
The attraction features posters, videos, magnificent costumes, a video wall , documents, programmes, trophies and paintings.
The Casa del Carnaval is located on Calle Aguere and is open to the public.
