I hope you didn’t think the holidays were over yet. This Sunday is the 14th annual Three Kings Day Parade. January 6 is the Feast of the Epiphany, the holiday marking the arrival of the three wise men to visit the holy family, and the revelation to the Gentiles that the little kid in the manger is actually the son of God. The celebration is going down on the 9th, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be quite the party. The parade is a cherished tradition among the neighborhood’s Hispanic community, and ones like it will be taking place all over the world. All are welcome to line the streets. You can expect to see live nativity-style barnyard animals, excited children, festive music, and plenty of dancing. Most exciting of all, will be the Magi in colorful robes, handing out presents to small kids. To make it authentic, camels will wonder the Williamsburg street, because c’mon, what good is a wise man without a camel? It’s sure to a good time. The procession starts at Meeker and Graham avenues at 2 pm. Check tresreyesmagos.org for more details.
