Carnaval

Carnaval – like other Catholic countries, the island of Lanzarote conducts festive carnival celebrations like before Lent (usually around early-mid February every year). As in Rio de Janeiro, Gran Canaria, Tenerife and elsewhere, locals here put on elaborate costumes and party throughout the island (in particular at Arrecife, Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise, and Playa Blanca). Parades and live musical performance are often held there as well.
