“We are full, sorry”. This is the phrase that one is more and more likely to hear when trying to book a table in the restaurants of Santa Cruz de Tenerife during the Carnival of the Day, which will be held this Saturday, 25 February, in the capital of Tenerife.
Some of the most popular and central establishments in the municipality have assured that they have had all their tables reserved for weeks: “This year people have come quite early”. Others, on the other hand, have opted to serve their customers on a first-come, first-served basis during the carnival day.
The Santa Cruz de Tenerife Town Hall admitted yesterday that it is preparing for a massive turnout over the “Piñata” weekend with a programme that will last from Friday evening until the early hours of Sunday morning.
CARNIVAL OF THE DAY PROGRAMME
On Saturday, Santa Cruz de Tenerife will experience its second day of Daytime Carnival, with the programme starting at midday.
