0 comments
It's that time of year again! Maspalomas Carnival runs from 20th February - 3rd March and takes place in and around Playa del Ingles, Gran Canaria.

This year's theme is CanCarnaval and the Roaring 20's! This is a brilliant theme for can can dancer costumes, gangsters, think Bugsy Malone and Moulin Rouge.

The grand parade takes place on Saturday 28th February with 115 floats taking part from 17:00h leaving from outside Hotel Parque Tropical.



Here is the parade route so you can plan where to join in or watch:



There are so many events during Carnival time, my favourites are The Grand Parade, Tourist Day and Burial of The Sardine. Check out the full carnival program for times and events:

Great news! It looks like the first Tapas Street Market in Arguineguin last October was that successful, the Town Hall decided to organise another.

On Friday 30th January from 20:00h - 02:00 little stalls with offering tasty tapas bites will decorate the beach road in Arguineguin in the 2nd edition of the market.

Enjoy free entertainment with live music and a DJ as you try out some of the delicious snacks and drinks from local businesses.

The first Tapas Street Market expected around 2,000 people to attend, but I did check it out early on in the night and it was very busy, I could see it being more.
