Aguimes has been one of the first towns in Gran Canaria to announce the period and the theme for the 2019 carnival.
The election of the allegory of the carnival in Agüimes for next year took place at the meeting of the carnival commission which was held, Tuesday, May 8th, to assess the events held in this year's carnival.
Representatives of all the groups that participate in these popular parties of the municipality of Agüimes took part in the meeting, along with the councilman of celebrations Samuel Molina Melián and his staff.
There was a total of eight theme proposals and after the debate the comission chose the theme: "Agüimes a carnival of villains" (“Agüimes un carnaval de villanos y villanas”).
