A treasured part of the holiday season in many Latin American countries, Día de los Reyes (Three Kings Day, or "Feast of the Epiphany") marks the 12th day after Christmas - when the Magi are said to have arrived with gifts for baby Jesus. Though bearing significant relgious meaning, the holiday is also a celebration of Latin culture, welcoming all faiths to join the fun with live music, dancing, homemade food, typical drinks, and a parade. While the holiday always falls on January 6th, La Parada de Los Reyes Magos (The Three Kings Parade) in Little Havana is often reserved for the following Sunday. The official 2016 date has yet to be announced, however, so please check with our Concierge for further confirmation.

 

Cuban Music, Dancing, & Colorful Floats

Past years have welcomed players from the Miami Heat (NBA) and Dolphins (NFL), as well as legions of local celebrities. In addition to star power, attendees can expect the streets themselves to be dancing, as Little Havana seethes with live Latin rhythms, marching bands, folk groups, and towering balloons.

 

Don't Forget the FOOD!

Even before the music hits you, there's a great chance you'll catch a whiff of the cooking, as street vendors and restaurants alike prepare treasured staples like fresh hot tamales, arepas, and the holiday's token Rosca de Reyes (King's Bread) - a traditional sweet bread in the shape of a crown.
