Costa Teguise Carnaval took place in February. The Carnaval starts with the birth of the sardine and ends with the burning or burial of the sardine. It's similar to a Harvest Festival.
The evening before this carnaval parade there was a band on the back of a truck playing to the crowds. There was also a torchlight procession held by mainly German people. I don't know what that was about but we joined in for a bit!
The Carnaval is great fun and most of the Spanish people and the locals join in! The parade ends with very loud fireworks as is traditional in Spain.
