Three kings in San Pedro
by: Zora

If you go to Marbella, make sure you get there early. They block off some streets for this.

If you are living closer to San Pedro, it may be easier for you to see it there just near Church square (Plaza de la Iglesia). If you want to get it over with quickly, then it's best to stand near the fairgrounds (where the Thursday market takes place). It's where it all starts.
(Church Square).

La Cabalgata of January 5th refers to the festive parade taking place in most Spanish towns to commemorate the arrival of the Three Kings. It is a popular family event worth attending as the Kings cross town on big chariots and throw candies to all children near-by.
