SEE: THREE KINGS DAY 2017
El Día de los Reyes is the Christian holiday that celebrates the birth of Jesus in Latin countries and tradition has it that those children who leave their polished shoes under their beds (in preparation for the arrival of the kings of Europe, Arabia and Africa) will receive gifts the next day. In Puerto Rico, the custom manifest itself as leaving hay in a box under the bed to feed the camels. Come early to check out the crowds, costumes and various floats since the route is only for about a dozen blocks and the entire parade only last for an hour and half.
