THE Three Kings will travel in style for this year’s celebrations, arriving to various towns by boat and helicopter.

Not quite camels! The Three Kings now use helicopters to deliver presents to children across Spain

This Friday, January 5, is an important day for children across Spain. 

It is the day when the Three Kings arrive with arms full of Christmas gifts. 

But this year, the kings will touch down with more extravagance than ever in Estepona, Benahavis, Fuengirola and Benalmadena. 

The festivities will start in Benalmadena, where the Kings will arrive by boat at 10:30am on Friday morning. 

They will arrive at the Puerto Deportivo, where children can give the Kings cards in return for gifts. 

The Kings will then make three stops in the town’s main areas before being greeted by the mayor, Juan Antonio Lara at the Museo Precolombino Felipe Orlando.

Celebrations will begin in Estepona at 11am, when the kids party will kick off in the Parque Ferial, Deportivo y de Ocio Permanente.

After a day of fun, the Kings will arrive in the city by helicopter just before 5pm.
