The official opening of the carnival festivities, a spectacle in which the heroes are the crowd attending and the master of ceremonies. Masked revellers, murgas and comparsas and the candidates for Carnival Queen (Reina del Carnaval) and Drag Queen take part in the opening ceremony in Vegueta – all the traditional characters in the Carnival. The event is preceded by a parade that livens up the festival streets with batucadas – drum bands - and carnival rhythms. From 8.30pm, a parade heralding the event will lead the way from the Alameda de Colón to the Plaza de Santa Ana itself, where the opening speech will begin at 9pm.
