Coming up on Friday March 03 of 2017 at 22.00. Inscription and "Tacon" high heel measures taken at 20.00 on Plaza del Charco. Afterwards is DJ's night until 00.00 on the same town square.
A competition for its best carnival costumes or themes adds extra incentive to take part.
Winners are announced at the end of the pageant at Plaza del Charco, the main town square.
The satirical picture carnival bikinis of this gay carnival troupe is comical and hilarious. Look how they are covered in beach style, while hardly any bare skin is detected.
It makes top fun of overweight ladies by Tenerife shores. A tired marathon runner in high heel boots has found a seat by the wayside.
admire the stunning dress of a man who takes a carnival Marathon rest.
This gay procession is also called the High Heel Marathon besides Man's Marathon or Mascarita Ponte Tacón in Spanish. ( put high heel shoes masquerade)
Obviously, the depicted runner had a problem with his high heel shoes.
We should have settled opposite this road for photos, earlier on. No guard would have chased us away. The spectators who sit there and are enjoying themselves are proof of it.
The first marathon stretch of the gay Tenerife Carnival is the cobble road C/ Santo Domingo. It would be good to get shots of struggling walkers, there. Pointed heels and old fashioned roads are lethal. However, crowds are too dense there. Prime watch spots need to be secured long time before 10.p.m.
One is under the impression that at least 20 000 people are assembled along two narrow streets of about 800 meters.
Admire the two gay parade participants who were posing for us. This was at Paseo San Telmo by the ocean before its church, the half way mark of 800m the recovery spot of the gay show.
Beers were obviously most welcome before attempting the way back.
Nope, no drug and alcohol tests are done with carnival marathon runners.
This area is a good location to photograph each part of the gay parades.
Marvel at this helmsman on high heels carrying a heavy boat construction.
Part of it is metal.
His genuine smiles deny any effort.
Smiles, beauty, style, sexy men and utmost happiness is what this Puerto de la Cruz Carnival spectacle is all about.
Victoria Cruz Torres, a Tenerife local, told me that not all participants of this queer procession are gays. She took outstanding photos with her Nikon, some of which were donated for this web. Look at the beaming face of the man who mocks sex appeal of women.
The men certainly, look very merry, while they seem to have so much fun.
For those, who find a lucky photo shooting position by Plaza del Charco, the marathon highlight of obstacle climbing guaranties great pictures. There, the guys have to surmount truck wheels on high heels, for example. Guess the roaring commotion and giggles, which follow!
This fun parade festival is by far the biggest Puerto de la Cruz and Tenerife Island spectacle, where you see the happiest faces. It all started in 1994 and had a record year of 30 000 spectators in 2017.
