Edwin Rivera welcomed Carnival parade in Antigua's Carnival Tent

A dozen Drag Queens paraded in front of an overjoyed public who admired and enjoyed groups of dancers, the ZulyMar Street band, the voice of the very young singer Suri Hernández, the dance troupes of The Groove and Dance Queens, the act of the famous Tutto Durán, and the youngest Drag Queen of the Canaries, the Drag Villanz, during a light and sound show on a surprising stage.

 

The barranco of La Lajita is the new location for the hoisting ramp of Pozo Negro

The councillor of Agriculture, Livestock and Fishing, Matías Peña, visited the coastal village of Pozo Negro with technicians from the Coasts and Fishermen's Administration, regarding the improvement that is planned with the modification of the initial location chosen for the build of a platform and hosting ramp for small boats. The new location provides more safety for boats and will make the hosting on the platform easier as it will reduce the problems that could be created by waves during the manoeuvres. Fishermen, the technicians and the councillor agree that although this modification will delay the execution of the project, it will improve the service to fishermen without disturbing or being detrimental to the coastline of Pozo Negro.
