CITIES and towns across Almeria have celebrated the traditional Three Kings’ Day traditions in style.
On the eve of Epiphany day, Kings’ Day giant parades took to the streets of towns and cities throughout the province.
In Almeria City, thousands of people turned out to see the 500 person strong parade where two million sweets were handed out as Almeria welcomed the kings in the snow.
The parade was filled with members of the city’s community including postmen, Scout groups and the municipal band among several brilliant floats. Similarly, more than 1,200 kilos of sweets were handed out in Nijar as many people from the town watched the parade.
In Mojacar, hundreds of children received gifts from the Three Kings. On their arrival into the town, they were officially welcomed by the mayor of Mojácar, Rosa María Cano and her government team, before proceeding to the Centro de Usos Múltiples via the Fuente to hand out the toys to around 700 children.
The kings arrived by boat in Garrucha, as hundreds of people waited to greet them as they docked. After they made it to dry land, the kings paraded through the streets of the town, handing out sweets with the help of many of the town’s children.
