This year the carnival celebrations of Puerto de la Cruz have 'recycling' as the theme.
And so the poster announcing the festivities, designed by Anoniman, shows a face decorated with random bits of metal objects to demonstrate that even a few screws and loose nuts can be made into a costume for carnival.
and this year the carnival queen of Puerto de la Cruz is Virginia Molina Marrero.
The first runner up or 1st dama de honor is Carolay Garrido Rodriguez, pictured below:
Credits for these photos go to the photographers of the official carnival websites.
The main parade in Puerto de la Cruz will be on Saturday, February 25 and there will also be another day carnival in the streets on the next day, Sunday February 25 from 10:30 am.
I will probably be down in the plaza to join the crowds.
I'll be back next with my street photos from last Sunday.
Thanks for dropping by and ¡hasta la vista!
