Las Palmas Carnaval 2012 Agenda

If you are planning to visit Las Palmas during Carnaval time in 2012, you will be pleased to know that the local council has released the agenda, so you can get busy planning your trip. There is a Carnaval in the South which some people prefer to attend but if you fancy something different this year, you might like to see the Carnaval in Las Palmas instead. It goes on for a couple of weeks and there is something on nearly every day.
