Tourists visiting Gibraltar tomorrow (Friday) will be able to enjoy colourful local festivities celebrating the arrival of the Three Kings.
The cavalcade will be held along Main Street on 5 January at 7.30pm and, as part of the annual tradition, sweets will be handed out to members of the public at Casemates Square and Main Street from 7 pm.
The ministry of equality will be setting up a cordoned-off accessible area outside No. 6 Convent Place for people who hold a Disability Information Card. They will be required to present their card to a member of staff on arrival, and entry will be on a first come, first served basis.
Street parades of flamboyant floats transporting the Three Kings (or “Los Reyes” in Spanish) and their assistants are also held throughout neighbouring Spain on the evening of 5 January.
The following day is when Spanish families traditionally hand out their Christmas gifts, although many people have (at least partially) gradually embraced other international customs and now tend to split gifts-giving between Christmas Day and 6 January.
Gibraltar’s Christmas fair attractions will remain open until 7 January.
