The burial of the sardine takes place on Ash Wednesday. During this event there are two spectacular rounds. The parade and burning of a giant reproduction of a fish. That day, people of Tenerife leave their spectacular costumes and take the widow's one, in deep mourning for the death of the sardine that represents the end of the carnival time. The exaggerated cries of the 'widows',or of some 'disrespectful' clergymen, are all a comedy act. The burning of the sardine, and the suspension of the carnival until the next year, with the exception of the 'piñata' weekend, unleashes a hilarious and distraught cry of fun.
