The Las Palmas Carnival, on the volcanic Canary Island of Gran Canaria, is a spectacle of colour, dancing, singing and celebration and will certainly make for a more interesting and exciting family holiday next Spring or just a fun way to experience this beautiful island. The 2009 Carnival is just in time for the February break in the run up to Lent so your children won’t have to miss out on ther education to see it (if you want to take them with you that is) and spans three weeks from the 3rd to the 28th of February.
The Carnival is packed with all sorts of exciting parties, galas and contests, from the popular Gala of the Carnival Queen showcasing hours of loving work on beautiful costumes glittering with sequins, feathers and lavish luxury to the gaudy appeal of the Drag Queen Contest.Â For the younger members of the family there is a dedicated Children’s Carnival where they have their very own Child Queen Gala along with fancy dress competitions, dancing and singing contests. Set against the spectacular backdrop of the volcanic Gran Canarian landscape, the effect is totally exhillerating. What better way to get close to the magic and then be able to cruise along to a peaceful beach when you want to relax afterwards than chartering a yacht, especially when all the hotels will be packed with eager carnival goers, to see what you could be relaxing in once the party is over these are the available yachts in the Canaries for the event. So book your flights, your yacht and your family and go!
