The twelfth day of Christmas is January 6th, the Feast of Epiphany, also called The Day of Three Kings. On this eve, gifts are exchanged for the holidays in most Spanish speaking and some European countries. Its a big day for kids. The Cary “3 Kings Day Parade” at Bond Park is presented by Diamante , a non profit dedicated to the preservation, development, and promotion of the culture, heritage, and artistic expressions of the diverse Latino/Hispanic population in North Carolina. The parade, music and dancing are all prelude to a lot of giving by Diamante and its supporters (like Toys For Tots and local grocers) to those who have, not so much. It felt like a big family. The gallery is here: 3 Kings Day 2012 .
