Three Kings procession in Marbella 2016
On the evening of 5 January, everyone headed for Avenida Ricardo Soriano (the main street in Marbella) to see the annual Three Kings parade. This year’s theme was popular movies. The first, as you might expect, was Star Wars with Darth Vader and his stormtroopers showing off their skills with light sabres and of course everyone’s favourite Princess Leia. The municipal band were as usual at the start of the parade playing some stirring music to get us in the mood.
We then enjoyed a huge hippopotamus, a hairy mammoth, a giraffe, and an extremely life like gorilla – all rocking to the music. The floats were beautifully prepared and full of film characters and children throwing caramelos to the crowd. It was a wonderful end to the Christmas and New Year festivities here in Marbella.
