The Three Wise Men from the East will return the magic and illusion to Santa Cruz de Tenerife who will arrive, one more year, by helicopter at the Heliodoro Rodríguez López Stadium. Due to sanitary restrictions, the reception show ‘Las Fálerías de Babayán’ will be closed to the public and will be broadcast on Canary TV from 5:00 p.m.
‘The Babayán Factories’ has as its plot the hidden toy factory in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where Zenda, Balto and the rest of the characters prepare the gifts that the Three Wise Men will distribute on the night of January 5. Everything seems to be working well, until a shadow will endanger the arrival of their majesties.
Once the Mayor of Santa Cruz, José Manuel Bermúdez and the Party Councilor, Alfonso Cabello, welcome the three Three Wise Men and hand over the magic key that opens all the homes in the municipality, five delegates will be launched real that will cross the main streets and avenues of all the districts.
Starting at 6:00 p.m., five royal groups will tour the main streets and avenues of Santa Cruz. The tours of the Centro-Ifara, Salud-La Salle, Ofra-Costa Sur and Southwest districts will consist of three floats decorated with lighting and music from which Melchor, Gaspar and Baltasar will greet the people who congregate on the tour . The convoy closes with a truck loaded with gifts.
Given the special characteristics of the Anaga Massif, the Three Wise Men will visit the different towns, neighborhoods and hamlets in a convertible minibus, which will also be accompanied by a truck full of gifts.
The routes of each of the delegates will be communicated on the social networks of the Autonomous Organization of Parties and Recreational Activities (OAFAR), as well as on the website www.reyesmagosensantacruz.com, where people with Android mobile devices will be able to follow the route through tracking that will allow them to geolocate the exact position of the floats on the city map.
The extensive route and the location of the five delegates by mobile devices has been proposed by the Santa Cruz de Tenerife City Council to avoid crowds. In addition, the low speed at which the floats will advance will allow the access to greet the Three Kings to be planned in an orderly manner.
In the presentation of the acts, the mayor pointed out the differences between the groups this year and those of the past “in which this year we went from four to five groups, without a curfew, with which the pace will be slower like the Traditional Parade and they will go through the main streets and avenues of the five districts ”.
For his part, the Councilor for Festivities, Alfonso Cabello, highlighted as a novelty and so that there are no long waits or crowds, “the implementation of a system so that families can follow in real time in which points the royal groups are. ”.
