Three Kings Parade

“La Cabalgata de Reyes Magos” is celebrated on Thursday 5th January. It’s the biggest Christmas celebration in all over Spain. In Barcelona it’s celebrated with a big parade trough the city.

Although the public holiday and day for opening the Christmas presents is January 6th, is the 5th the day when the Three Wise Man arrives to Barcelona and large focus of the celebrations is then. In the parade the Three Kings throws sweets and gifts to the children, while everyone is on the streets welcoming them back from their long journey to the East.

On the Three Kings Day is a tradition to eat a pastry called "Roscón de Reyes".
