When the Kings Come Marching In

A wave from the Three Kings and a smile from the camel at The 22nd Annual Brooklyn Three Kings Parade!

The Brooklyn Three Kings Parade graced Graham Avenue for the 22nd year on January 6th.  The day was mild and mostly sunny for a change from the usual cold. The camels and marchers added their own type of sunshine to the crowd of spectators who lined the avenue. The NYPD marching band led the parade to “When the Saints Go Marching In”.  The organizers of the parade host it each year to pay tribute to Latin tradition and as a gift to the children, so they can participate and learn this tradition in hope they will carry it on.
