Asociación de Mujeres: Actividades programadas
The Three Kings, Gaucin, 2014
- Published on Tuesday, 07 January 2014 09:09
This year “La Cabalgata de los Reyes Magos,” a Spanish tradition of the holy week involving the three kings, was much smaller than in past years, and there were no presents for the children at the church, but we hope that next year we can solve these problems. “La Cabalgata” left from the Convento, went all throughout the town, and finally returned to where it started. The kings rode their horses together while the children were in tractors throwing candies, which were delicious! There was less candy this year but in the end it didn´t matter because the important thing is that the parade for the benefit of the children, who did not care that the festivities were smaller than usual. At least our children continued running for candies and having fun on this day that is celebrated just once a year. Go to the picture gallery for more fotos of Reyes.

The course will be for six days on either side of a week end, 3 days before and 3 after. This would give plenty of drying time to started pieces in order to continue with glazes etc, always a problem with oil courses.
