On 5th of January, Spanish people celebrate Cabalgata de Reyes, resembling a second Christmas or rather the end of the Christmas season. Tradition says that the Three Kings came to visit baby Jeses, and brought gifts with them. On their return journey, they handed out their gifts to children.

Madrid's huge parade will display the theme of inventions this year. One can admire big figures of Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, and Leonardo Da Vinci, as well as huge televisions, the locomotive, and much more. The parade is always a big ordeal, working together with 9 different art companies (two from France), twelve floats, and over 2.000 people.

Route: starting at Plaza de San Juan de la Cruz to Plaza Cibeles, passing bz Paseo de la Castellana and Paseo de Recoletos.

The Three Kings parade is a must do, if you are in Madrid during this time!
