☞ WALK: The Three Kings Day Parade
January 6th, from 11:00 AM -1:00 PM at El Museo del Barrio. The three kings are the gift givers in Christmas lore and many Latin American countries celebrate Three Kings Day as the time to exchange gifts during the Holidays. Children would leave some hay and water under their beds for the king's camels and would wake up with a gift in the morning.
