If you are in La Palma during the first week of January, don't miss the Three Kings Parade which is happening in several towns throughout the island.

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.
