The Three Kings Parade

The Three Kings Parade

In Spain, Christmas joy is not over yet: we still have our ‘día de Reyes Magos’. The Three Wise Men or Three Kings will come on the 6th of January to bring gifts to kids (and well, we expect something for us also even though we’re not kids anymore!). 

On the 6th of January, families reunite to open gifts and eat our traditional ‘roscón de reyes’. But on Three Kings’ Eve, there’s also another tradition: the parade.

This year, the parade is inspired by the imagination and creativity, and over these two concepts, we will see a story of inventions, a tribute to inventors and geniuses such as Einstein, Da Vinci or Curie.

In Madrid, this will be the parade itinerary on the 5th of January:

Paseo de la Castellana (Nuevos Ministerios esquina Pza. San Juan de la Cruz) - 18:30 h

Paseo de la Castellana

Plaza del Doctor Gregorio Marañón

Paseo de la Castellana

Glorieta de Emilio Castelar

Plaza de Colón

Paseo de Recoletos

Plaza de Cibeles (the parade ends here, and for closing there'll be fireworks over the Palacio de Cibeles) - 21:00 h aprox.


There are some stands for watching the parade -they will open at 16:30 h-, and also some disabled accesses. For having all this information, click here.

Enjoy this magical weekend!
