Although uncertainty is what prevails over the dates of Carnival 2022, the truth is that the desire to return to normality is pushing hard, so much so that the total number of aspiring Queens almost returns to figures prior to the pandemic. Thus, there will be 29 candidates who aspire to the scepter of the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife in its different modalities, after the registration period proposed by the Capital City Council has closed, through the Autonomous Organization of Parties and Recreational Activities (Oafar).
The Party Councilor, Alfonso Cabello, stated that “the Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival is in very good health; we are very proud of the 29 aspiring Queens, their designers and their sponsors ”.
In this sense, the mayor stressed that “it is a successful call, despite the moments of uncertainty that we live.”
For Cabello, “this push reaffirms us in the commitment of all of us who are part of the Carnival”, and for which “we work every minute in a consensual manner with the groups, combining work calendars and current health regulations”.
The Queen contests of the Science Fiction Carnival will present 11 candidates for adult queen, 10 for child queen and eight for older queen.
