Dia De Reyes
The Three Wise Men are Melchior, Gaspar, and Balthasar. Dia de Reyes or the Three Kings Day is the day after the parade, the 6th January every year. Likely, one of the most magical days for children, it is the day they receive the Christmas gifts left overnight by the Three Wise Men.
There are many other options during the holiday season such as the MeNaX Christmas Market, the Carosella Classic, or the Christmas Amusement Park while the city is decorated with beautiful Christmas lights.
