Updated 18 November: Puerto de la Cruz got the announcement out first, but Arona will actually be the first to light up the borough, the big switch on of Christmas lights throughout the municipality taking place next week on Friday 29 November. Preparations and placements have been underway since mid-October, the Council says, with some 1,700 decorations and lights ready to bring Christmas spirit to the streets, plazas and public spaces alongside traditional Christmas trees and a 100m light vault!
Original post 8 November: Even before tomorrow’s marathon in Santa Cruz, Puerto de la Cruz has fired the starting pistol … for Christmas 2019-2020. The council says that the town is getting ready for the full Christmas campaign with decorations starting to go up now all ready for the switching on of the Christmas lights on 1 December, just 23 days away! I’ll keep this post updated with all the municipal Christmas programmes throughout Tenerife as and when they’re published by the local Ayuntamientos, as well as any specific public events and, of course, the main Christmas Concert on Christmas evening in Santa Cruz harbour. Countdown starts here, ready or not!
