Another colorful poster was designed for the capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 1995. This year is marked in its upper part. The blue ocean and palms emphasize a fortunate climate. The carnival beauty with her party glitter and garlands stands for fun, fame and glamour.
The yearly poster design contest
In the past, known craftsmen from mainland Spain created the posters. From 2009 onward, local Tenerife designers were preferred. From then on, everybody had a chance to win the poster contest for the most famous mad season of Santa Cruz.
Even so called Talleres which are workshops enrol adults and children in the Tenerife capital to become creative with Carnival design.

Location of the Carnival posters made of floor tiles
Find this most unusual "open air carnival museum" opposite the Recinto Ferial Fair Grounds of the capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife beside Parque Maritimo César Manrique alongside Avenida de la Constitución.
They were all cast in stone and slightly spaced out in one long row in the pavement under shady trees. A large parking space for cars is next to it.
Tiny plaques above them indicate names of sponsors, such as the Lanzarote surf shop Pampero.
The man who should be thanked for this street art
Mayor Don Miguel Zerolo Aguilar was also honored in this spot. His ongoing carnival support was praised in calligraphy on one last poster. Thanks to him the poster paintings on stone became reality. The artistic writing was placed on white ceramic tiles which complements this extraordinary street art of Tenerife.
