The Three Kings Arrive in Tenerife Tonight


As they do every year, the Three Magi from the East will be arriving in various locations in Tenerife tonight as part of their busy schedule delivering gifts to both children and adults alike. The well-behaved ones anyway. :)

In Santa Cruz, once again, they will be arriving to the Heliodoro Rodríguez López football stadium at around 5pm, then their procession takes place from the Avenida Bélgica ending in the Plaza de La Candelaria, between 7pm and 9pm.

My favourite is, as ever, Los Reyes visit to Garachico, where the fun starts in the district of Las Cruces at around 6:30pm, with the procession descending through the district of San Pedro where they dismount to visit the Virgen de Los Reyes and later arrives in the town itself to visit King Herod's Castle then follows the star to The Glorieta de San Francisco, where Baby Jesus and his parents await.

In Adeje, The Three Kings will arrive at Adeje Football Pitch in a helicopter, at around 5pm after which there's children's entertainments and the grand cavalcade around the streets of the town. Llegada del Helicóptero de SSMM Los Reyes Magos de Oriente

Almost all towns on the island will get a visit from Their Majesties. Should be easy to find: just aim for the centre of town and follow the [other] screaming kids!

Here are just some of those on offer:
