Cabalgata de los Reyes is the first major festival to take place each year in Tenerife. This is an event of great national significance, being observed in the entire Spain. It is held on January the 5th, and implies the procession of three men in the guise of three kings who share sweets to the children attending the procession. The holiday is related to the Epiphany, though the religious significance of the event is overshadowed by the more worldly manifestations. In Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the manifestations occasioned by this event attain their height.
