    Hi, can you tell me what the burial of the sardine is, please, and about what time it takes place in Arrecife? We will be on Lanzarote that week. Thanks, Angela

      Hi, The burial of the sardine marks the end of Carnival and usually involves the burning of a giant Sardine effigy. It usually takes place on the Wednesday after the main Carnival just after it gets dark.
