The carnival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, as well as being a festival of national touristic interest, is the most important festival, the most characteristic and certainly the most awaited one throughout the year by its citizens. The official preparations begin really soon, starting from the previous year with the online vote for the theme that will characterize the edition and ending with the construction of the stage a few days before the inauguration, in January. During all this period, although not noticed, there is a great creative ferment that involves almost the whole city: the endless work of creating costumes for all the comparsas and musical groups begins, choreographies and screenplays are prepared for the shows, carnival rides are set up for the parade and many new songs are written. All the artists have been preparing for months with great passion, are they extras, murgas , aspiring Reinas or Drag Queens. Our dragon has become a symbol of this carnival, the fantastic creature par excellence we have chosen to represent the world of magic and fantasy.

In the municipality of Los Llanos de Aridane, talcum powder — as in the rest of the island — is thrown spontaneously and by surprise, regardless of whether the poor bystander is known or not. In , the time-honoured tradition of the Viejas a Caballotas was incorporated into the official programme of celebrations.
