THERE will be more than 23 floats dedicated to Mediterranean cultures such as the Romans in the Three Kings parade in Palma tomorrow evening, it was revealed yesterday, as Mayor Catalina Cirer opened the doors of city hall to the Kings' Pages, who arrived on horseback.
The Pages were surrounded by children and accompanied by various drummers who threw sweets to the crowds.
The Three Kings, Melchor, Gaspar and Baltasar, will land at the Paseo Sagrera on board the sailing ship Rafael Verdera, and will then parade through the city, accompanied by an entourage of more than 250 people, who will throw more than seven tons of sweets at the children lining the streets.
The parade will start at 7pm, and the route is shown in the Graphic.
Cirer explained that the main theme of the floats is the Mediterranean, with the emphasis on the Phoenician, Greek, Carthaginian, Roman, Byzantine and Islamic cultures, so that children can learn the significance of the Mediterranean in the history of mankind. Other floats will be based on Hansel and Gretel, the film Happy Feet, television characters and the Eurobasket championship.
