MIAMI (WSVN) - A festive community came out to Little Havana to take part in the annual Three Kings Day Parade.
Revelers descended on Southwest Eighth Street, Sunday afternoon, to celebrate the arrival of the three wise men in Bethlehem, formally marking the end of Christmas.
Three miles of Calle Ocho were closed off to traffic for spectators and parade floats. Festivities also included live marching bands and cheerleaders.
One attendee, who identified himself as Jaime, said he came out to enjoy the music with his family.
“It’s very good. It’s very hot, very hot. Trying to make it with the little girls,” he said.
Doral Police posted pictures on Twitter to show how honored they were to participate in the parade.
The annual tradition honors the Hispanic tradition of the three wise men giving gifts to children.
