Dates have now been confirmed as 17th to 27th March for the highly anticipated International Carnival of Los Cristianos 2017.
The theme will be ‘Las Vegas’, with all the magic, music and, fun that we associate with the State of Nevada and no doubt the programme will be filled with lights, razzmatazz, showgirls, magicians and even the odd Elvis and Frank Sinatra impersonators. That, however is for us to anticipate as the official programme is still a secret and will be published nearer the time.
The poster, designed once again by Luis Marrero not only provides the carnival spirit of the gambling theme by depicting the Joker and the Queen of Diamonds, but also hints at the eternal struggle of good against evil particularly during the period of Lent.
Last year the Southern carnival attracted over 25,000 people, this year, possibly more as we are uncharacteristically seeing announcements ahead of the scheduled event so can pre-plan our holidays around this major attraction.
