If you're in Gran Canaria during the first days of January, don't miss the Three Kings Parade

On the 5th of January 2022, the entire island of Gran Canaria will celebrate the visit of the three wise men: Balthasar of Arabia, Melchior of Persia and Gaspar of India. Remember also that January 6th is a bank holiday and most of the shops will be closed.

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.

The Three Kings Parade takes place on January 5th, 2022.

In 2022 the day will be celebrated a bit differently compared to normal years, due to the fact that Gran Canaria is currently at alert level 3, so there are restrictions in place that forbid large gatherings and events.
