Tenerife Carnival attracts over one million visitors
Over one million visitors enjoyed the vibrant parades, show-stopping costumes and amazing dance performances at this year’s deep-sea themed Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
The internationally-renowned carnival, which is the Canary Islands’ largest and the second biggest in the world after Rio, attracted a record number of attendees across the 27 days of celebration.
The final night of the event saw more than 400,000 revellers gathered under the stars for a musical extravaganza of concerts and dancing.
A total of 55 events took place during the month-long celebration, including the Carnival Queen Election Gala that is considered by many as the highlight of the festivities.
Priscila Medina was elected as Tenerife’s new Carnival Queen following a colourful three-hour gala, which was attended by over 5,000 people. Her stunning dress, called ‘La Nuit’, was created by Tenerife-based fashion designer Sedomir Rodríguez.
