KingsTomorrow is Three Kings or Los Reyes Magos as they say here – and a Bank Holiday across Spain. But tonight (Sunday), on the eve of Three Kings was the magnificent parade which started at Dove Park, a little after 6pm and ended up at the town hall square.

IMG 8048There were numerous floats - (sadly pulled by very polluting tractors) and some stunning costumes – they really do know how to do them here, lots of bands, choreographed dancers and plenty of livestock including donkeys, goats, sheep and even a flock of very well-behaved geese!

 

Blue queenSpectators lined the entire route and one of the highlights for them are the sweets which are thrown from the floats as they passed - 4,000kg! The last float was the one carrying the Three Wise Men - Melchor, Gaspar and Baltazar following the star to Bethlehem and bringing their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh for the Baby Jesus, which they laid at the nativity scene.

soldiersTo finish the evening off there were the obligatory fireworks, lit from the roof of the town hall and then all the children wanted to rush home and get to bed in anticipation of finding gifts left for them in the morning… the naughty ones get a bag of coal!
