Fiesta del Carmen in Puerto de la Cruz
Some 30,000 people are expected to attend today's Fiesta del Carmen in the northern metropolis of Puerto de la Cruz. The festival began at around 10am with hot chocolate and churros, a typical Canarian pastry. At about 3pm the spectators will be entertained by the funny flag hunt at the end of a tree trunk above the harbour basin. Most of them end up in the water. At 5.30pm, the festive mass takes place, followed by the solemn procession to the harbour and the subsequent boarding of the statue of the Virgin Mary on a fishing boat.

In the harbour basin of Puerto de la Cruz, people bob around all day on inflatable boats, air mattresses or other inflatables.   Others cavort on the beach and at the jetty.
