The neighborhood of La Isleta, at the end of Las Canteras, was the seed from which the modern Carnival spread in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. A forbidden party during the Franco regime, which survived under the euphemism of Winter Festivities, being held at that time and in an almost underhanded way the masked balls in "popular" social "clubs" in the area.
Since the eighties, the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Carnival gained unusual strength, progressively adding acts of great popular impact, always with Santa Catalina Park as the epicenter of its main events. Currently, the Carnival by day, the Carnival in Vegueta or an extensive program of children's events complete a party that has the Queen's Gala, the famous Drag Queen Gala and purge contests or comparsas as its most deeply-rooted appointments and attractiveness.
Many are the tourists who travel to the city every winter to enjoy this celebration, which always unfolds in large festive concentrations in the street. Cavalcades, parades and concerts are calls with a large influx of traditional mascaritas. Carnival is, without a doubt, one of the great events of the year in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, famous on an international scale and deeply felt by the local population.
