Traditionally in Spain, the Three Kings bring Christmas gifts to children on the night of January 5th – the eve of Epiphany.
In Palma and in towns and villages across the island, Melchior, Balthazar, and Gaspar can be seen in their finery, distributing gifts to excited local children.
The main arrival of the Three Kings takes place in Moll Vell in Palma at 18.00h before the procession of 13 floats and 41 troupes passes through key plazas in the city including Plaza de la Reina, Paseo del Borne, Plaza Juan Carlos I, La Rambla, and Jaime III. The Three Kings then greet the crowds from the balcony of the Casal Solleric at 20.45h.
The celebration continues with concerts and events throughout the city until around midnight. There are several changes to the bus routes around Palma from 16.00h so it is worth checking the EMT website before heading in to the festival. The police also close several roads around the main procession route so it is recommended that you leave your car outside of Palma and walk in or catch a bus.
