King 2The spectacular Three Kings parade took place in Benidorm old town this evening (Friday 5th) – a tradition that was repeated in many towns and cities across Spain on the eve of  ‘Los Reyes Magos’ - 3 Kings tomorrow, which is a bank holiday here.

 

Ice floatThe floats left from Dove Park shortly after 6pm with the evening sunset making for a beautiful backdrop as they set off. Thousands lined the streets to cheer as they all passed, which included a vast assortment of animals including the gaggle of very well behaved geese.

  

Green dancerThere were also lots of marching bands and choreographed dance routines in between the various floats. But one of the highlights for the spectators – especially he children are all the sweets thrown out into the crowds from the floats and the mad scramble to collect them all.

 

King 3The last float carried the Kings carrying gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh in front. The parade finished at the town hall square, where the gifts were left for the baby Jesus at the nativity scene. The children all then rushed to get home and to bed – for when they wake up in the morning they will have been left a gift – or a bag of ‘carbon’ (coal) if they have been naughty!
