Three Kings

The Three Kings Parades in Lanzarote

The three kings parade with Melchor, Gaspar & Baltasar riding camels in Lanzarote can be seen in a variety of places across the island on the 5th January each year.

Here in Spain, the 6th January is the day that children traditionally open their presents – reflecting the fact that it was on this date that the three Kings brought baby Jesus gifts. The parade on the 5th is all about The Kings travelling to Bethlehem, and here in Lanzarote, they are usually mounted on camels. The Kings throw sweets to children waiting for them in the streets.

The 6th January is a public holiday for Día de Reyes.

Look out for the traditional Roscón de Reyes cakes to buy, they have a fun element to them with a king and a bean hidden inside. If you get the king you wear the hat, if you get the bean you pay for the cake!

These are all taking place on 5th January 2024.
