Hartford Celebrates 3 Kings Day
Live camels and brightly-costumed kings highlighted the Three Kings Day Parade.
The procession went down Park Street, and ended at Pope Park, where children were offered rides on the camels, and gifts.
A long line of women and young children stretched from the recreation center to the parking lot, where they climbed steps to a platform next to the camels.
The Spanish American Merchants Association helped organize the parade.
Three Kings Day is celebrated in many Spanish-speaking countries as the day the kings came to Bethlehem bearing gifts for the newly-born Jesus.
