Feliz Día de los Reyes!
Día de los Reyes (Three Kings Day in English) celebrates the Three Wise Men's 12 day journey to Bethlehem to deliver gifts to the baby Jesus. The holiday is especially popular in Spain and Latin America and is often celebrated with parades and eating rosca de reyes (King’s cake). On Friday January 3rd, Michael Patterson, our business development coordinator, had the opportunity to the Fiesta de los Reyes/ Three Kings Day Festival at the San Lorenzo Club in Cleveland. The event drew a large crowd; the club packed with packed with people and attended by Mayor Frank Jackson, several leaders in the local Hispanic community such as Juan Molina Crespo, Jose Acevedo, Leticia Lopez and Lucy Torres as well a number of excited children eager to have their picture taken with the Wise Men. The festival was a celebration of our diverse community and we are so happy that we had a representative there! Feliz día de los reyes!
