For the fourth year in a row, the East Harlem Head Start program proudly marched in the city’s Three King’s Parade.

The event, while always a chilly one, is a favorite among the children and families. The parade, coordinated by El Museo del Barrio, has everything  needed to celebrate the special holiday: music, floats, special honorary kings, and even camels!

The Head Start families did a lot to prepare for the big day. Parents and children created crowns to wear and designed signs to carry. image006 The teachers read books about the day’s traditions. A representative from El Museo even came to the Center to give a presentation on the history of Three Kings Day. image008 As always, it was an honor for everyone to participate in such a special community event.
