Los Realejos chooses “Holidays at sea” for Carnival theme
Los Realejos will be going on a massive cruise in February 2020, courtesy of the annual carnival!
Organisers of the popular event have confirmed the theme of “Holidays at sea” following a vote via Facebook when 20 options were put forward.
Councillor for fiestas, José David Cabrera chaired his first Carnival Mixed Commission which is composed of representatives of the municipal political groups as well as the groups linked to the carnival.
Festivities will begin with the proclamation on February 16, an act to be carried out in Calle de la Alhóndiga, and in which the candidates for the titles of Queen and Young Queen will be presented.
The committee is pleased with increasing citizen participation especially in the Carnival of the Day and in the Coso. The possible change of the date of the traditional incineration of Mr. Rascayú to the Sunday after piñata Saturday is still to be determined. This event is usually held on Ash Wednesday, but on several occasions, just as it happened in 2019, it had to be postponed to the Sunday because of rain and actually prompted a greater influx of participants.
