Carnaval Arrecife 2013

The carnival poster for this year was designed by artist Nuria Meseguer, who likes to combine underwater photography with art. Nuria commented at the unveiling of the poster “For more than twelve years on the island,  I have taken photos under the water which has given me a lot of material to work with. The waters of Lanzarote have grabbed me”.

The Recinto Ferial, the location of the majority of this year’s carnival events is the large white tent situated in the car park by the Cabildo and Intercambiador bus station in Arrecife. There is an entry fee of €3 for the murgas and drag queen events, the proceeds of which will go towards the prize money.

Monday 11th is the date for the grand parade, the floats will depart from the football ground next to the bus station from 6pm, another good event is the much shorter carnival parade along the seafront for the Burial of the Sardine on Wednesday 13th February.
