Puerto del Carmen - Carnival Time!

Saturday 25th February was Carnival Day in Puerto del Carmen and what a Carnival it was. The procession started at 5pm and meandered along the long seafront road, 3 hours later it was still flowing. But it was not only the magnificent costumes of the parade that was breathtaking, but those who watched along the entire route. Everyone was into the spirit of the festival including the restaurant, cafe owners, shop workers everyone soaking up the carnival atmosphere. We went as ghosts...... and as well as us, here are just some of the amazing sights that enjoyed the 2012 Carnival!

That looks amazing, Pauline. Shame my mum wasn't there because I think she would have enjoyed it. I love the palm trees that line the road.
