Crowd enjoys Crispin ceremony
A traditional ceremony was enjoyed by hundreds of people in La Orotava despite the bad weather.
“Widows and widowers” joined in a mock funeral for “Crispin” who was given a funeral and ceremonial burning.
This year, the procession had a change of route and went from La Cancela to the Plaza de la Constitución, watched on by residents, visitors and carnival groups.
The atmosphere was further livened up through entertainment from the group “Clave de Son” and by creative tapas served by restaurants from the area.
