The arrival of the Three Kings is an important event in the Spanish Culture, with festivities taking place in almost any city in Spain. The celebration starts on the night of 5th January, with a parade called Cabalgada de los Reyes Magos.
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.
In Fuerteventura, there are usually several parades, organized in every big resort and city on the island. Check the schedule below to know the time and schedule of events for each municipality on the island.
If you're planning a holiday in January in Fuerteventura, it would really be a shame to miss such an important event like the big parade which is organized each year on January 5th.
