The Dia de Canarias is an important public holiday of the archipelago of the Canary Islands which takes more than a day.  Folklore with folk musicians are just some of the traditional highlights. 
   

It's a great time to go out on the town,  for relaxing and to be happy, such as at Cafe Ebano.
   

It's when street art made of salt is displayed in some Puerto Cruz streets with Corpus Christi motives, such as in the background of the Ebano Cafe by Calle Quintana.
       

It's also the day of proud displays of the blue, white and yellow Canary flag.
   

Dia de Canarias long week-end for eating out
