El Museo del Barrio is gearing up for El Barrio’s time-honored tradition of the Three Kings Day Parade, now in its 34th year, with its renowned procession through the streets of East Harlem. As El Museo’s description points out, “Where else can you find live camels, sheep, donkeys, music, colorful puppets, dancing, and parrandas in one fabulous event?” The parade will be held on Thursday, January 6, 2011, beginning at 10:30am.
Description: For over three decades, El Museo has distinguished itself as the leading institution in New York City that celebrates and promotes the Three Kings Day tradition. The parade has brought the spirit of the holidays to el Barrio and thousands of children, parents, teachers, artists, political and community leaders, and residents. Each year, El Museo’s dynamic parade, led by the Three Kings, winds through the streets of El Barrio including lively music, colorful costumes, animals, floats, and thousands of students and community members as participants.
