Celebrate Three Kings’ Day with a Singing Parranda and More on Jan. 5th

Celebrate Three Kings’ Day with a parade, music, food and free books, led by the Hyde Square Task Force on Jan. 5th.

The Three Kings (played by HSTF youth) hand gifted books out to children at Headstart.

Three Kings’ Day, also known as the epiphany, which is on Jan. 6th in the United States, celebrates the three wise men’s visit to baby Jesus, recalling his baptism.

The Hyde Square Task Force (HSTF) is leading the event in collaboration with the Connolly Branch of the Boston Public Library.

The event will kick off with community members meeting at the Connolly Branch Library (433 Centre St.) to decorate crafted crowns and listen to a reading about Three Kings’ Day.

Following the reading, HSTF’s youth group Musicians in Community will lead a parade and singalong down Centre street. The parade will end at Hyde Square Task Force (361 Centre St., behind the Blessed Sacrament Church) and will be followed by treats and folkloric Caribbean music by Zayra Pola. Refreshments will be provided and each child attending the event will receive a free book.

The schedule is as follows:

4 pm
