Three Kings Day Fest January 5, 2013
It marks the end of the biblical journey of the Three Wise Men, who followed a star to Bethlehem to see baby Jesus and bring him gifts. This is a very popular tradition among the Hispanic community, especially for kids as they get their last opportunity to receive their holiday season gift. Back in the old days children would place grass mostly inside of a shoe box and slide them under their beds so when Three Kings arrive, the camels will have some to eat while the Kings deliver their gifts to the children.
January 5, 2013 The first edition of Fiestas Patronales of Pembroke Pines Florida was held in 2001. Since, well over 300 thousand people have visited this family oriented event full of culture, tradition, Hispanic food, carnivals and some of the best Latin Music in the world.
