    The big day is Ash Wednesday, but there are many goings on in and around that day. It is spectacular.

    I will let you lot have a sneak preview of my Things to do in February which will be published near the end of the month. It says

    Santa Cruz (25th January to 26th February) The first weeks consist of competitions for the clowns, dance troupes, floats and the election of the Carnaval Queens. The partying starts in earnest with the Opening Parade and although there is a Closing Parade celebrations continue for several more days.

    17th Opening Parade
    21st Main or Closing Parade, from 4 pm.
    22nd Burial of the Sardine A huge papier-mâché fish is carried through the streets accompanied by a throng of ‘mourners’ including pregnant men, bawling women and priests who set the fish alight at the end of the parade. Followed by yet another excuse for more fireworks.
    26th Parade of Vintage Cars 10 am.

    Puerto de la Cruz (16th to 25th February) (no opening parade this year due to cutbacks !!)

    22nd Burial of the Sardine
    24th High Heels Drag Marathon a particular favourite of Puerto de la Cruz rounds off Carnaval and where Lily Savage lookalikes race around an obstacle course on heels as high as stilts.
    25th Closing Parade.

    Los Gigantes (1st to 5th March) the theme is Tropical

    Los Cristianos always the last to confirm their carnival dates so we should be grateful they have announced the dates as 3rd to 11th of March but as yet no schedule.

    If you want more information or the background to Carnaval you can find it here http://www.carnavaltenerife.es/cartel-2012

    Remind me closer to the time and I will sort out exact dates.

    Dia de la Trilla. Is an ingenious way to get the wheat threshed by displaying agricultural practices that haven’t changed in hundreds of years. The wheat is spread out, horses race around, then children get on boards and are dragged around by a couple of oxen. In the process, the wheat is threshed and the locals sell homemade jams and cheeses from their stalls in El Tanque.

    On the day of the Traditions of Chirche, people re-enact the lives of the Canarians from over half a century ago. Old houses, which are uninhabited are open so that visitors can explore in detail to learn how the inhabitants used to live. Visitors can also see bread and roof tiles being made. Taste typical foods, such as trucha or mistela, a coffee liqueur, which can also be bought and taken home to complete a perfect day.

    Virgen del Carmen Celebrated in Tenerife’s many fishing villages. Thousands of people gather at the port to watch the procession of the virgin through the streets and into a decorated boat. Dozens of fishing boats accompany the Virgin and sail round the coast and as they return there are beautiful firework displays. The best places to see this is Los Cristianos, Las Galletas and Puerto de la Cruz.

    The Fiesta of San Benito Abad has been declared of National Interest to Tourism. Thousands of visitors to La Laguna take the tour that starts at the San Benito Abad chapel and continues through the historical centre of the town. Highlights include tasting traditional dishes such as Canarian wrinkly potatoes and gofio, which are generously handed out to participants.

    The great photos were taken by my mate Jack (of pill box fame) who gave me permission to use them in my blog.
