The Spirit of the Churriego Carnival

The Spirit of the Miguelturra Carnival is kept alive in Balcones y Terrazas

The streets of Miguelturra and especially Carnaval street, are dressed in Carnival. The residents of the town keep the spirit of the Churriego carnival alive by dressing their balconies and terraces with costumes, not losing hope of returning next year with new illusions. 

This Monday morning, we should have enjoyed the usual skillet fruit contest organized by the Peña Los Rocheros and in the afternoon, the street mask should have filled Carnival street with color and excitement shouting ¿What Don’t you know me?

The friend Octavio, has not wanted to forget the situation we live in and has wanted to do it with a song as usual, he has titled it ‘The Virus of the Century’


This virus that we have
it’s not just any virus
the carnival has been loaded
and the street masks.
You have to stay home
that is the pure truth
better stay at home
than to go to the hospital.
This year gentlemen
we can’t enjoy
to eat the donuts
and drink the lemon.
Do not be sad
and what they tell us to respect
and for next year
there will be better Carnival.
Have if it ends soon
this damn virus
bars open soon
without committing a crime.

Let’s all be careful
‘according to Minister Illa’
to go outside
put on the mask.
You have to behave very well
for the account he has us
and be able to celebrate with pride
next year’s Carnival.
Men, women and children
and everyone in general
you have to wear a mask
the days of Carnival.
You have to visit the bars
that is fundamental
they have closed many days
and they are having a hard time.
And i say goodbye to you
with tears in sight
and I give you a big hug
to all pensioners.
