Each year, on the 5th of January, every municipality and town on the island of Lanzarote welcomes the arrival of the Three Kings from the East.
On January 6th, Spain celebrates the Epiphany or the arrival of the Three Kings from the Orient, an event which is highly anticipated by everyone, but especially by children, who receive gifts on this day (similar to Christmas day in other cultures).
The day of the Epiphany, January 6th, is a public holiday and so many businesses will be closed on this day.
However, the celebration starts a day before, on January 5th, with a highly anticipated event: the Three Kings Parade (La Cabalgata de los Reyes Magos). The kids will write letters asking for toys or other gifts and they will and these letters down to the Three Kings when they meet them before the parade.
There are parades organized in all the major resorts like Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca and Costa Teguise, as well as in the other major towns like Tias or Yaiza.
The Three Kings Parade is always celebrated on the 5th of January.
The Three Wise Men will visit Yaiza this Wednesday, January 5.
The motorized tour will begin at 9:00 am in La Geria after the keys are handed over to his Majesties by the mayor, Óscar Noda, and the councilor for Celebrations, Javier Camacho.
The route and scheduled time of passage through each locality can be consulted in the QR codes incorporated into the 13 'royal mailboxes' distributed throughout the municipality.
