A WATERFALL of sweets will shower down on Spain’s streets today when the Three Kings parades come to town.
Millions of people are expected to come out and join in with the huge Cabalgatas de Reyes, which will snake their way through both bustling cities and tiny villages.
They are headed by the three Reyes Magos (Three Wise Men), who throw sweets and toys out to lucky spectators over several hours.
The major event takes place the day before the national holiday of El Dia de Reyes (Epiphany) on January 6, which commemorates the day the Magi visited baby Jesus in Bethlehem.
