The Three Wise Men’s Cavalcade of Castellón:
It is celebrated as usual on January 5, at which time the wise men will approach this city to parade and later distribute the presents to children who have been good.
At 16:00 hours, the most awaited moment will take place for the children, because at this time it is foreseen that their Majesties arrive by boat to the city. They will disembark in the ‘Plaza del Mar’ and will receive the children later in the tenure of the City Hall of Grao.
At 7:00 p.m. will begin the cavalcade of kings in the city, which will have the following route or itinerary:
Calle San Roque, Sanahuja, Plaza Maria Agustina, Gobernador, Guitarrista Tárrega, Asensi, Plaza de la Paz, Calle Mayor, Arcipreste Balaguer, Plaza Mayor where the cavalcade will end as it is traditional.
Once it ends, we have to add that the second most important phase of the day will take place. And is that children will have to go home, with the goal of have dinner and go to bed early. In this way, when the kings bring their presents and put them under the Christmas tree, the children may already be asleep.
