In recent days the Municipalities of Fuerteventura have elected the allegories of the 2024 Fuerteventura Carnivals.
Surveys were held among citizens in some municipalities, while in others it was the competent authorities who chose the allegories for the upcoming Carnival celebrations, one of the most heartfelt festivals on the island, which attracts tourists and people from everywhere.
But let’s go in order:
Puerto del Rosario
The capital Puerto del Rosario has chosen “el mundo submarino” (the underwater world) as the allegory of the 2024 Carnival after a survey held on the official web page of the city municipality.
The Carnival theme prevailed over the other two which were “A cartoon carnival” or “Cultures of the world”.
The city Carnival, unless changed, should take place between 8 and 18 February 2024.
La Oliva ( Corralejo, Villaverde, El Cotillo, Lajares, etc)
The Municipality of La Oliva also selected the allegory of the 2024 Carnival through a large citizen survey.
The carnival groups of the municipality of La Oliva proposed four allegories: ‘Cinema’, ‘4 Elements (Earth, Water, Fire and Air)’, ‘Art’ and ‘Mythological beings’.
In the end, the theme “Cinema” prevailed with 34.4% of the votes.
The Carnival of Carnivals should take place in the various Pueblos of the Municipality of La Oliva (Corralejo in Primis, but also El Cotillo and others obviously) between 7 and 24 March 2024.
