Three Kings Parade in Javea
Three Kings Parade Javea 5th January 2018
The Three Kings will arrive by boat to the port in Javea at approximately 5pm, greeting the children and parading through the streets until approximately 7pm when they leave and head for the historic old town and into the Placeta del Convent where the presents will be given out.

A brief history – For many Christians, the holiday season doesn’t officially end until the 12th day of Christmas known as the “Feast of the Epiphany” or “Three Kings’ Day”. According to the Gospel of Matthew, the Three Kings – Melchior, Caspar, and Balthazar found the divine child by following a star across the desert for twelve days to Bethlehem, in order to present baby Jesus with three symbolic gifts – gold, frankincense and myrrh.
