Fiestas on Tenerife – Fiestas de Los Cristianos, The fishermen’s fiesta

Lots going on in Los Cristianos for the celebrations in honour of the ‘Virgen del Carmen’ this weekend with a lot of events for the young taking place around Playa de Los Cristianos this morning and afternoon followed by a DJ concert in the recinto ferial at 20.00 and a ‘Grand Dance’ at midnight.

But the event that most visitors should enjoy is the fishermen’s procession tomorrow (Sunday 6th September) from the Church of Neustra Señora Virgen del Carmen to the harbour at 20.00. After the ‘Virgen’ is loaded onto her waiting carriage (fishing boat). After that she’ll be taken for a wee trip around the bay before being welcomed back with a firework display, so lots of ‘ooohs’ and ‘aaahs’ are the order of the day.
