In another year and after a long trip, the Magi from the East disembarked after 6.30 pm at the fishing pier of Lo Pagán, where they were received by dozens of children waiting for their arrival with great expectation.
Melchor, Gaspar and Baltasar then climbed into their majestic floats to start the traditional Christmas parade, in which they were accompanied by the fantasy of the marine world, story characters, Disney princesses and the dance bodies of Copellia and Kebanna in addition to a float childish.
Clothed by hundreds of Pinatarense families who did not want to miss the parade, the three wise men traveled the Romería de la Virgen del Carmen and Emilio Castelar avenues where, for the first time, they made the cobbled section on foot to greet all the older children. that filled the streets with magical illusion.
Once the parade ended, and also as a novelty this year, the Magi made their offerings before the Birth of the Municipal Bethlehem that this year celebrates its 25th anniversary.
Thus, as tradition dictates, His Majesties of the East left gold, frankincense and myrrh to the baby Jesus and then on the stage of the Constitution Square, with the church of St. Peter the Apostle as a backdrop, they received and listened to the last wishes of the smallest before distributing gifts among local children.
