Candidates line up for starring role in Santa Cruz Carnival
Most people will know that the annual Santa Cruz Carnival is rapidly approaching but you might not realise just how imminent it really is!
Amazingly, because who can believe that another year has gone by, the full programme kicks off on January 21st with the presentation of candidates for the Carnival titles.
There are three competitions: for the children’s Queen, the adult Queen and the Queen to represent the older age group.
Organisers of the carnival are delighted that 14 candidates have come forward to compete for the main title and she will be chosen during a glittering show on February 11th.
There are 15 contendors for the title of Children’s Carnival Queen and they will take part in their own gala on February 1st.
Meantime, there are three candidates for the honour to represent the older generation, with this selection evening taking place on February 4th.
The election of the Carnival Queen will receive widespread publicity as it will be broadcast through Televisión Canaria and the group Atresmedia, a national company.
This year’s Carnival is on the theme of “The Future” so some spectacular costumes are once again expected.
In the run-up to the main events, there will be various rounds of the competitions to find the best musical groups and various entertainment evenings. You can find the full programme on www.http://carnavaldetenerife.com/
