Apart from the Carnival parade, the other events will be held in the Plaza del Varadero which is situated by the harbour in the old town area of Puerto del Carmen. There isn’t a particular theme set for the carnival in Puerto del Carmen, other municipalities have chosen the Olympic Games & Olympian Gods if you’re looking for inspiration but really, anything goes!

We thought we’d include a little explanation of Carnival phrases for visitors who might not know what to expect, Murgas are a group of singers with a story to tell, Comparsas are dance groups with percussion and Verbenas are open air parties.

Lanzarote Football UD Lanzarote 0 US Yaiza 1

Yaiza´s debut season in the Tercera Division (Fourth tier) is proving to be a good one. On a horrendous windy day they blew away Lanzarote early in the first half and in doing so completed the double over their more illustrious neighbours with their 3-1 home win earlier on in the season.

The opening stages of the match were evenly balanced with both sides committed to winning the ball. In the 12 minute British boy Kennedy was put through the centre but just as he struck the ball the defender pulled back the winger ever so slightly but it was enough for Kennedy to stretch and sky the ball over the bar.

Two minutes later and good build up play for Yaiza set up midfielder Dani who struck the ball low and hard from just inside the area into the corner of the net giving our southern friends a 0-1 lead.

The visitors had another fantastic opportunity to double their advantage just a couple of minutes later. Striker Antonio Yeray let rip from the edge of the box and it was only a brilliant save from Rojillos keeper Agoney that prevented the visitors taking a two goal lead.
