The Parade of the Three Kings in Madrid 

Until the first carriage begins to move and the parade starts, the parade topic is normally maintained in secret. Nevertheless, independently of the chosen topic, the parade of the Three King​s is always a very exciting moment. Last year, the subject was “ode to curiosity". The idea was to highlight that human beings wish to know continuously more about the world that surrounds​ them. It was presented as a story with around 20 scenes and with 2000 people and 12 carriages participating. It was indeed, an extraordinary show for the whole family with theatres, acrobatics and giant puppets... and the children were not the only ones who enjoyed this magic environment!

Carriages with the Three Kings

Just as in Madrid, the Three Kings are also an essential element of the parade in Barcelona and the topic changes every year too. You should come and discover with your family the new carriages and the costumes. Gaspard, Melchior and Balthazar normally reach Barcelona from the sea and continue moving across the main roads of the city in order to meet the children and their parents. Last year, the countries of origin of the Three Kings inspired the carriages and they were decorated with elements of Japanese gardens, decorations of Andalusia and African totems. You should come to Barcelona and discover with your family the topic of 2018.

As everywhere else in Spain, the Three Kings will be part of the parade on January 5. They will collect the children's gift lists and delight the children with an impressive and majestic show in the streets of the Aragonese capital. The parade will bring them to the Plaza de Pilar, where they will hand over frankincense and myrrh to the Christ Child at the crèche. Many theatre groups will participate in shows in the streets and will stay on various carriages. Do you wish to discover which subject will follow the planets that were the topic of the parade in 2017? Then, you should join...the surprise is waiting for you!
