Dia de los Tres Reyes
Sat. Jan 9, 2010:
There was much singing and announcing at the jardin in the late afternoon, so I had to go down to the square to see what was going on. Last week I missed a great show band helping our soccer team celebrate winning a tournament!
A little after the fact (Epiphany was Wed), but it was the 3 Kings' Day where there is singing, dancing and a talent show of sorts on a stage set up on the west end of the jardin. I counted half a dozens Santas giving prezzies to kids - lots of shaving cream to spray - a very big deal, Mrs Claus was there, and Speedy Gonzales, as well. The 3 Kings were introduced and they threw wrapped candies to the delight of the little ones. One of the last acts I saw was a dance by all of Santa's eves. The crowd was big and everyone was having a ball.
