Yes those were camels striding along under the BQE on the afternoon of January 11th. The day was bitter cold with wind chills, which could sour the sweetest camel’s mood, but this 18 year old tradition in North Brooklyn lured the locals out of their warm and
cozy homes. The Three Kings Day Parade observes the Epiphany, an especially important Christian holiday in the Latin American calendar.
Radames Millan, the Parade’s president and founder stated, “The story of the Three Kings is about the delivery of good news, it is about hope and faith; this year the Parade will culminate with that message. The program will pay homage to community and the memory of PO Rafael Ramos with a special dedication.”
Borough President Eric Adams was chosen to be the Grand Marshal of 2015’s parade. He led the parade of local school groups, angels, police officers, the family of officer Ramos, and the Three Kings in their full attire bearing gifts for all the children.
Hundreds of Students from District 14 and 32 came out celebrate an Important Tradition in the Community. Parade President Radames Millian who like to thank all the Local Businesses and Elected Officials for their support of the Parade.
