Safety during the Three Kings Parade is paramount, especially considering the excitement levels of the kiddiewinks. Adeje Town Hall has issued the following advice, which applies equally to all areas.
During the Three Kings parade in Adeje on January 5th there will be a number of people present who are working to keep everyone safe. Your safety is important to them and to their majesties. So, it is vital that everyone is aware of and follows a few safety rules so we can all enjoy the evening.
- Let’s work with Policía Local, the Civil Protection volunteers and the Volunteer Fire Brigade
- Don’t park in the streets where signs have been put in place to request you not to
- Stay on the pavements during the parade, behind the barriers that have been placed there for your safety and to make sure you keep a safe distance from the parade floats
- Don’t attempt to cross the road in front of or between floats
- Do not try to lift children up onto any moving floats
- Don’t let go of your child’s hand during the parade – a sweet isn’t worth a life!
- Don’t let your children climb up onto lampposts, walls, awnings or any other unstable structures
- Avoid collecting sweets too close to cars and floats
- Don’t let off bangers (petardos) as you could frighten animals and cause panic among handlers and float attendants
- In the case of an emergency phone 112
- The Policía Local have advised parents to make a simple paper bracelet for their kids with a contact number on it in case they get lost, and do remind them to look for the police if they are lost or frightened.
After all that we wish you a Happy Kings Day!
Enjoy the Three Kings Parade – wherever you may be in Spain!
