Children dressed for the 'Burial of the Sardin Tenerife

Tenerife attractions carnival Burying of the Sardine

Don't miss the processions of the burying of the sardine in the capital or in any of Tenerife carnival towns. Every year a carnival sardine made of paper maché is paraded through the streets. Tenerife fantasy never runs out to show her in different colors and decor. Although she looks gay despite dead, her mourners are dressed in black. Indeed, that includes children.

How and when watch Tenerife carnival parades?

Carnival dancer Santa Cruz Tenerife
Carnival parades happen by mid afternoons in the Canary Islands,except for the sardine burial with may be at night. Best be there on the look out after lunch to find a good front place on parade streets. You can't catch a good shot of a carnival dancer such as depicted beside, or videos when heads obscure your camera lens.
Hard chairs can sometimes be rented in the first line along some roadsides for about €2,50. No idea if you could bring your own camping chair if you notice some high up spot beforehand...I never tried this, but believe me there are few chances to get a good lookout...
Follow parades in the capital by the harbor(port) Avenida de Anaga or even near Plaza de España....

Watch the Tenerife attractions Carnival in Puerto de la Cruz in Avda. Familia Bethencourt y Molina, which was called Generalisimo before... Find this street at Playa Martianez by the 5 star Hotel San Felipe.

All Carnival dates and times should, always, be confirmed by the media beginning of February, by the latest.

This is the big Samba workout which lasts right through the nights. Nobody sleeps.

Take part in this carnival frenzy and dance yourself slim ...

Or do you know a more fun way to lose weight quickly than with live Samba music when even masks are allowed? Main locations are Plaza de Canderlaria/España and Plaza del Principe.

Tenerife parking and shopping during Carnival Santa Cruz

Mind staying over in Santa Cruz or nearby is a good idea. Parking during Carnival Santa Cruz will only be possible in the town outskirts. You can walk or catch a taxi while booking early helps. Most shops and malls may be closed. Therefor, less public transport is to be expected.

High heels obstacle competition event carnival Puerto Cruz

The grown up guys' carnival festival is an extremely hilarious show in Puerto de la Cruz of Tenerife. Brave participants used to put on tight long dresses in shocking colors and equally grotesque very high heeled (plateau) shoes for the gay parade of carnival Puerto Cruz. Today, the fashion has changed.

Carnival fun on the biggest of all Canary Islands is contagious, you know...

Europe's gay community is crazy about this sexy carnival event. Gays adore Tenerife attractions' carnival fun. However, the carnival laughter keeps everybody young. The Spanish would say ' están divertidos'( they are enjoying themselves).

Tenerife carnival Santa Cruz beauty

Female Tenerife carnival splendor is so attractive

The feminine carnival cult which involves all ages is impressive.

The most striking, colorful, glittering, divine and feminine outfits are used for the dress up. Imagination knows no boundary.

Women often make their carnival dresses themselves. That way they have best control to become Tenerife attractions on carnival.

Over centuries they learned to bring out the female beauty and femininity with best dresses, perfectly.

Tenerife attractions carnival would not exist without the stunning ladies' costumes.

Tenerife Spain beauty election alias Carnival queen election?

Head decorations of carnival Tenerife
To see the teenage girls at the gala for the carnival queen election in television is impressive. Their dresses have heavy rods on the bottom to make them swing. The head decorations with feathers but also much metal usually weigh very heavy on a scale. Rumors mention 400 kg. Perhaps that includes the rest of the attire.

This, however, does not turn such cumbersome carnival wire dresses such as depicted in the photo beside less attractive for the girls.

Mind this is a glamorous carnival fashion turned into Tenerife attractions which were borrowed from the courts of Louis XIV in the
13th century. The dresses were so attractive that they were fashionable for a long time. They've kept on drawing attention with the aristocrats of Spain and elsewhere in Europe for a long time. It became almost a global rage with the more wealthy women. The adult Tenerife carnival queen of the mad season doesn't only receive invitations by major carnival cities. Fashion magazines like Elle or Vogue may open doors for her. Of course, her election was broadcast in television, as it is such a popular event. Then Tenerife females that shine like goddesses of attractions may be seen in other countries also thanks to satellites in the orbit.

Carnival design academy

The design for carnival queen and Comparsa dresses and headgear has been a proud tradition in Tenerife for many decades. Now, there even is an academy where foreigners are welcome to learn.

History of Tenerife Carnival

Tenerife carnival festivities became island attractions by official support as far back as 1775.

In 1852, carnival was, for the first time, funneled through municipal channels.

Those attractions on the island were needed for escape and illusions such as only offered by carnival.

The disguise fiestas were forbidden when General Franco had the say in Spain. However, Tenerife attractions carnival were still a force to be reckoned with. They survived underground with the Murgas and fiestas del invierno. But that is a long story... The wish for freedom of speech which is still so important to the Fufa of Nifu Nifa, to the Fregolinos as well as to many other Murga groups was too important to give up.

Anyway, when the dictator was gone the disguise returned to the island's streets again. In 1979 the first private companies started to support a total re-organization. Nowadays, a new theme or motto is chosen before new carnival events by year.

Tenerife attractions carnival 1920 and sixty years later

A good example of Tenerife Carnival history of 1920. with masqueraded ladies of Los Realejos with their very unusual hats.

Sometimes, even foreigners are selected by public tenders for the decoration of big humor and masquerading shows.

Posters are newly designed,
printed and distributed every 12 months.

Tenerife attractions the cutest carnival clown

Tenerife attractions carnival for the youngest

The fabulously dressed child on the right with the unusual clown costume is one of countless. Mind many are much younger. No doubt, kids dressed for carnival are so cute. That's why they have their own queen called Reina Infantil. The masquerading season without this age group wouldn't be half as exciting.

Tenerife carnival benefits the gay community

In fact, it also offers great escape for expression of the still underprivileged gay people who contribute much to the crazy weeks of the Tenerife winter season. However, there is no official drag queen that represents Tenerife the island.

There are a couple of gay business men where I live. Both work in tourism.

They confirm that Tenerife attractions such as the island's carnival is much loved by the gay community who rocks up from all over Europe to attend the island's carnival.

Also, there is this small, sympathetic open for all sexes gay bar which has German and Spanish flags outside during carnival. It's called La Barca and it is in Longuera Los Realejos in Calle Monturrio in my neighborhood.

La Barca a bistro bar where carnival is celebratedBistro Bar La Barca Toscal Longuera
Nobody is allowed to get harassed, there, not even during carnival.
It has best cocktails (also alcohol free) which draws more new comers during the crazy disguise season every year.

It's next to the good La Finca Restaurant which is a red house and almost a landmark on a street corner where you get to the sports stadium Los Realejos.(Pavillon)

What's got Düsseldorf to do with Tenerife carnival?

German carnival Tenerife Dússeldorf also made Puerto de la Cruz carnival different apart from its Mascarita Ponte tacon gay Marathon parade.

More honor for Tenerife attractions carnival

By the way, guess who was paying a visit to Santa Cruz in 2014? The Carriocas a famous Parsas group from Rio de Janeiro took part in the Tenerife disguise events of 2014. In fact, Santa Cruz Carnival is the sister of the Brazilian one.

The carnival of the biggest Canary Island reminds us much of the famous carnival in Rio de Janeiro which you can see at www.ipanema.com world. Rio carnival is number 1 attraction while Tenerife is in 2nd position now before London. In the UK they say that their carnival celebration comes 2nd.

Certainly, each of the former 2 has its particularities which some find more or less attractive with weather being in Tenerife's favor but, both are great festivals.

The Tenerife carnival has been declared of International Tourism interest in January 18 of 1980. It now thrives to receive the UNESCO distinction of World Heritage Merit i.e. Patrimonio de Humanidad.

A Brazil Comparsa in Tenerife with some music from South Africa

Forgive me to show it here. I am such a fan of both the Rio de Janeiro Samba style and the Zulu rhythms. In fact, Rio de Janeiro is the carnival sister town of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

The days of Tenerife attractions carnival are announced as events every year but may change slightly. Mind Easter doesn't fall onto the same dates every year either.

Why is Puerto Cruz carnival special?

As you may guess, it is its large foreign community which adores the Tenerife Carnival and all kinds of other holidays.

More important in the context Tenerife attractions Carnival is that Puerto de la Cruz has a very active community for all kinds of arts which is celebrated during the Mueca Tenerife North art festival.

Tenerife girl of Carnival Puerto de la Cruz
El Puerto, surely has its own style and has its own mad ways to spend the nights during its main two weeks of carnival. It's amazing how many young people are cruising Puerto's hub during its craziest time of the year. Admire a lovely
Tenerife girl(Tenerife chica guapa) from Puerto Cruz area made up with fancy head ornament for carnival in the image beside.

One carnival example Puerto Cruz which sums up much of its spirit

I never forget a hilariously happy group of such youngsters.

One was carrying a miniature clothes stand which covered part of his upper body. The thing had washing lines with the most embarrassing underwear pegged on it. He paraded with that.
Just figure the picture...
He was wearing a short embroidered roundish apron with frills and checkers. One could still see the pants and his bare knees
below. Rest of hairy legs with stockings not quite up to the knee were showing. If not mistaken he also had plaited hair. How the heck he did that, no idea...
I forgot the rest, but believe me, there were more ridiculous carnival details with this friendly guy. You see, it's those original accessories and the personality which goes with it that cause laughter. That's what Tenerife attractions carnival Santa Cruz and the rest of the island are all about.
Puerto de la Cruz carnival is 2nd biggest of Tenerife attractions carnival after the Santa Cruz festivals of disguise.
