The Carnival Team is working on rescheduling events, pending reports from Safety and Emergencies

The organisation will update the programme on in its various versions in other languages, and will give information constantly on its Facebook and Twitter social profiles: @LpaCarnival

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 24 February, 2020.— With the ongoing alert announced on the evening of Saturday, 22 February, by the Canary Island Government General Directorate of Safety and Emergencies, due to wind and sand haze in all the islands, the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Carnival department will offer constant information on its international profiles in Facebook and Twitter: @LpaCarnival. It will also update the programme event by event on the corresponding tab in the website, where it will give information about the relocation of events, as long as the weather situation allows the events to be held.

For the time being, the team will continue to work on preparing a schedule which will allow the maximum number possible of the events to be held. This schedule expects, as long as the alert is deactivated and the conditions are favourable, to hold the remainder of the Drag Queen Shortlisting event - with performances by the eight drag queens who could not perform last Saturday - today, Monday 24, and the Drag Queen Gala on Friday 28. For the time being, the programme cancels the traditional carnival scheduled originally for Monday, 24 February in the dual carriageway in the Centre.

The holding of the scheduled festivities is still subject to the changing weather conditions and to the reports and technical recommendations of Safety and Emergencies.
