This celebración is
about the 3 kings, the well known theme from the Bible. They
arrive in the Port of Palma on a boat, bringing gifts to the kids.
This year an estimated 150.000 persons had taken to the streets of
Palma de Mallorca to se the procession. After a successful landing
they move to the town hall, where they are welcomed by the Mare of
Palma. On to Plz. Major, Sant Miquel, Oms, La Rambla, Jaume III and
ending at Paseo Mallorca. Gifts are being distributed among some lucky young
ones, and thousands of "caramellos" being thrown to the people. The
date of the celebration is on the 5th of January. The photographer
unfortunately failed to get photos of the kings themselves riding on
maybe next year. Similar events are taking place in the
other bigger towns on Mallorca.
