While it seems that the current Christmas holidays have gone on for months, this weekend the fun, festivities and national holidays will finally come to an end.

The final fiesta to look forward to (maybe not for Spanish parents who are still buying more presents) is that of the Three Kings, traditionally celebrated on the night of the 5th January and the 6th being a red day.

However, this year, the Three Kings have decided to visit the municipality of Guardamar early and will actually turn up there three days in a row.

Thursday 3 and Friday 4 January

The Three Kings will arrive at the town hall of Guardamar at 17.30h and their parade will take them from the town hall in the main square to Calle Los Pinos, where Santa’s Grotto is currently located. The Kings will stay in Calle Los Pinos until 20.30h and they will spend the time collecting letters written by all the local children that have been addressed to them.

Main parade

The big parade will take place as usual on Saturday 5 January. The nearby roads in Guardamar will be closed to traffic from 15.00h.

The Kings will arrive at 18.00h and will carry out a procession from the Plaza Jaime II, along the Avenida del País Valenciano and finish at the Plaza de la Constitución.
