Launching the 2013 carnival, was celebrated yesterday in Puerto del Rosario the contest of “arretrancos” which herein refers to the race of unconventional carts, without motors, that are launched down the slopes of the town. This is not about race, but rather they are combined with the floats, and participants are thrown at relatively low speed and in turn, will compete in costume and originality. They were preceded by a local murga (band of carnival musicians).
