Last night's Cabalgata de los Tres Reyes in Bigastro was the shortest we can recall. Having waited over an hour in the street, it was all over in minutes.
Leading the parade was a troupe of young girls performing a dance routine to Roy Wood's Wizzard hit, "I wish it could be Christmas every day". They were closely followed by pages who were meant to be giving out sweets, the Three Kings on one float and finally the band bringing up the rear.
By the time the parade had reached the point where we were on Calle Purisima, the supply of sweets seemed to have dried up. The children were only giving out the remains from their bags to friends that they spotted en route.
To be fair it was cold out there so nobody really wanted to be hanging around much.
