For the past 27 years, El Puente has presented a Three Kings Day or El Día De Los Tres Reyes show and celebration FREE for North Brooklyn residents and community members. What started out as a homegrown effort to honor and preserve a Latino holiday tradition for our own program participants has turned into one of the most anticipated events of the year for Latino families in Brooklyn.
The event features an original performance musical play entirely written, produced and performed by the youthand teaching artists in El Puente's in-school/after-school arts & cultural programs, along with El Puente’s artistic staff. The original story, in keeping with El Puente's mission, explores themes of sustaining cultural traditions, social justice and community.
