The Agüimes City Council has announced in an official statement that they are suspending the costume contest (Murgas contest) in the 2021 edition of their carnival.
There has been no other announcement regarding the dates of the event and the authorities say they are working to find a safe way to celebrate this event in their municipality.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, there are no large events currently scheduled to happen in Gran Canaria.
Even the big carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife is canceled in 2021, with everyone hoping that things will return to normal by 2022 so that the next edition of the carnival will be celebrated as usual in Aguimes once again.
The theme has been announced after a popular vote that took place online and it's "Aguimes, a carnival in the wonderful years 60's, 70's, 80's".
