There will be parties throughout Tenerife tomorrow night to celebrate the New Year, and most plazas will have music and dancing to welcome 2016 with the lucky grapes and champagne.
Adeje’s Fin de Año celebrations will be held from 11pm in the Plaza España between the Ayuntamiento and the Church at the top of Calle Grande – the council says the venue was chosen to help local commerce and to satisfy wide demand from locals. The traditional grapes will be on offer to welcome in the new year to music from Maquinaria and Sensación Gomera.
In Los Cristianos, the party will as usual be in the Plaza del Pescador outside the Cultural Centre. Festivities kick off around 10.30 with music from Son del Valle, Deliciosa and Pasión Gomera providing the atmosphere … and of course, the fireworks at midnight!
El Médano’s New Year’s Eve will be held in the plaza del Médano from 11pm, with music from Nueva Ilusión, Pasión Gomera, Son del Valle y Deliciosa, and of course fireworks at midnight. As always, there will be free buses for party-goers – the council’s information on the routes available is HERE.
In the north, RTVC will broadcast the new year live on television from Garachico, where there will be celebrations in the town and harbour, all focused on the Plaza de la Libertad and the glorieta de San Francisco, while La Laguna will see in the new year with a party in the Plaza de la Concepción, and Santa Cruz in the Plaza de la Candelaria: all start at 11pm. Puerto de la Cruz will kick off the party earlier, from 10pm in Plaza del Charco.
Wherever you’re celebrating, have a lovely New Year’s Eve, and I hope 2016 is memorable for all the right reasons. Happy New Year!
