Cary, NC — This year was the first year that the annual Three Kings Day Parade took place in Downtown Cary. The weather was cold, but a nice crowd turned out to cheer on the marchers.
The Three Kings Day Parade
The 10th annual parade was sponsored by Diamante in partnership with the Town of Cary. The Diamante organization helps to promote and support Latino culture in the Triangle. As part of the parade celebration, donations of winter clothing and groceries are giving to deserving families privately at the close of the event.
Diamante’s Estrella de la Esperanza (Star of Hope) Campaign culminates with the Día de los Reyes Parade (Three Kings Day Parade) on Saturday, January 10, 2015. Traditionally, January 6 is a very important day, especially for children. It is on this eve that gifts are exchanged for the holidays in most Spanish speaking and in some European countries.

Gorgeous pictures! Kudos to photog Kurt Hilton, Cary Citizen and the town of Cary for their support of this joyful event.
It might be helpful to remind readers of the meaning of the Three Kings themselves—I think you did this in an earlier piece, but with today’s diversity in our communities, it’s good to clarify for those who don’t celebrate this day.
