1. THREE KINGS PARADE
Date: January 5th

Spain celebrates Christmas every January 6th. So the arrival of the Three Kings (Tres magi day) or Three Wise Men, is a big celebration.

The tradition is that the kings arrived the night before Christmas and that’s why the parade is celebrated on the 5th of January.

The parade is all about the biblical tell of the 3 wise men following the Bethlehem Star.

The Three Kings Parade departs from Plaza Fragata, front of the town’s church. Lots of fun!
