The Three Kings arrive on Lanzarote today, making the wishes of hundreds of children come true – especially if they like boiled sweets.
The weather forecast predicts a 45% chance of light rain for the afternoon, meaning that the Kings are odds on to have a dry parade.
Please note that the biggest parade on the island, in Arrecife, has changed its route this year. The parade will start at Puerto Naos in the east of the city, move around the Charco (passing the Marina) and end up in the Parque Islas Canarias. Many roads will be closed during the parade, and the nearest bus stop is Los Alonsos.
Tomorrow, 6th January, is a Bank Holiday, and although many larger shops and shopping centres will be open, many smaller businesses will be closed.
