The other side of Tenerife celebrates the International Carnival of Los Cristianos, Arona 2017 or better known by locals as the Southern Carnival. Very popular for being later than the conventional dates of carnival that is celebrated more to the north of the island and in the capital.

The southern enclave to collect this holiday is Playa de Los Cristianos, in the municipality of Arona. This year’s theme is Las Vegas and it comes with a very varied program with galas, murgas, dances, festivals, contests, concerts, parades, wigs, costumes, choreographies and much more.

But keep forces in your body for what remains…

On the penultimate day in the planning of these carnivals there will be an exhibition of classic and old cars where you can relax a bit, admire these works of art and then get some air, because the march continues with the Great Aposoic Coso of the Carnival.

And if your body does not give more, but it gives you regret that the holidays are over, you are invited to the Burial of the southern Sardine to bid farewell to these days of celebration. You have to wear black, but with a lot of glitter and above all a lot of humor, satire, laughter and the desire to have fun.

On Monday, March 27, starting at 9:00 pm, the end of the Southern Carnival begins and also is the beginning of your holiday planning to return next year.

Do you know what the Burial of the Sardine is?

In Tenerife every year enjoyment and laughter are guaranteed thanks to the celebration of the Carnival.

There is a special day in the schedule of your schedule in which there is a very particular reason to go out to the street.

This year will be held on the first Wednesday of March, at 9:00 pm at the Juan Pablo II location of the capital of Tenerife.

After a month full of costumes, parties, lights, glitter, music and good atmosphere, comes the day of the Burial of the Sardine, in spanish named as “El Entierro de La Sardina”. 

This is a typical ceremony of the dates that announces the end of the Carnival with parades of a more funeral style, but with a waste of laughter, jokes, nice jokes and a thousand other things.

Although it is a combination that may sound a bit strange, it turns out to be the perfect mix to have a great time.

The parades during the Burial of the Sardine are a parody of a funeral procession that is traditionally celebrated on Ash Wednesday, ending the journey with the sardine burning as a representative figure of the Carnival.

The carnival parties are then dismissed with this event and the beginning of Holy Week begins.

The Burial of the Sardine is also a symbolic way of burying the past along with errors, reborn clean, with more strength and experience.
