Three Kings Day in Santiago de Compostela

Tonight I witnessed the annual Three Kings Parade or La Cabalgata. It was amazing to see so many people in Plaza de Galicia (the center of town) waiting patiently for the Three Kings to arrive on their carriages. A little after 6:30pm two police cars stopped traffic and you could hear a band playing around the corner. Shortly after that...the Three Kings arrived! Tomorrow children will open their presents from said kings and Saturday morning marks the beginning of the rebajas(sales: similar to Black Friday in the States).
