BURIAL OF THE SARDINE - TENERIFE CARNIVAL 2017

  • Calle Juan Pablo II Santa Cruz de Tenerife, CN Spain (map)

The Burial of the Sardine is the most irreverent event of all at Carnival. The “chicharreros” dressed as widows mourn for the sardine and they say good bye to the Carnival until the following year. After a slow but vibrant parade the Sardine arrives to the Avenida Marítima, where it is set ablaze and turned to ashes, taking away the excesses committed during the crazy Carnival.
