Carnival In The Canaries

Here in the Canary Islands, there is a great tradition of celebrating the Carnival, so today with these pictures I want to make you trave to my city and enjoy this party.

We choose a Queen, a senior Queen and also a junior. The costumes are very elaborated and heavy, but also very spectacular.


There is a big parade, where everybody can participate and be part of the party. A lot of music, colors and feathers...







Also, we have a big stage where many galas, concerts and events for children are celebrated.




Our Carnival last three weeks and every weekend there are celebrations on the streets, with people dancing disguised with their original costumes.










I hope you have enjoyed this virtual tour ! And if you happen to be in the Canaries this weekend, enjoy the big parade! :)
