Three Kings Parade 2015 Date, Time, Location: Where to Celebrate Día de los Reyes in NYC, Miami & Chicago
Día de los Reyes takes place on Jan. 6, and for Latinos, it is a time to commemorate the day that the Three Wise Men gave Jesus presents. It is also known as Epiphany.
Children also receive presents on this day. Similar to Santa Claus, children leave treats for the camels and their shoes outside on the eve of Día de los Reyes. The next day they awake to find presents.
