Three Kings in Marbella – Arrival & Procession 2018

On Thursday 4 January, a large crowd gathered in Marbella’s Puerto Deportivo to herald the arrival of the Three Kings (Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar).

They arrived just after 17.00 on a Fly Blue Catamarán to the sound of cheering children, all keen to see them and grab hold of the caramelos (sweets) traditionally throw into the crowd by them. As usual, the Three Kings mingled with the crowd before setting off in three open top cars through the streets of Marbella to the Ayuntamiento (Town Hall) in the old town.
