Carnival Fuerteventura perfect for children
The children’s Murga “Los Garabatos” has been in existence for 30 years. They belong to the Cultural Association Datsimaal, which emerged as a neighbourhood group more than 100 years ago in the village of Villaverde (La Oliva). It is a real non-profit association, at a cultural, educational and leisure level for all the neighbours.
On the 7th of March, we have an appointment in the sports court of Villaverde at 20h00. The Carnival Fuerteventura kicks off, and to honor the 30th anniversary of the children’s Murga “Los Garabatos,” we have a series of performances by the most awaited Murgas “Gambusinos”, “Sargorias”, “Quintillo.com”, “TicTactitos”, and “Zarandajas”. Don’t forget that tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis until total capacity is reached, and it is essential to bring your ID card.
Corralejo will be filled with joy and colour, with the Galas de Danzas, El Maratón de Murgas and undoubtedly the awaited Drag Queen Gala, after two years without being held, the carnival life returns to the site next to the José Perdomo Umpiérrez Pavilion.
Sara Estévez, Councillor for Festivities of the Town Council of La Oliva, “we will have all the stage acts.” However, “obviously, due to the requirements of the pandemic, they will be with limited seating, controlling the order of arrival, and with seats already assigned for each of the people.”
