In celebration of the Feast of the Epiphany, Senator Jeff Klein and Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda, hosted their Fourth Annual Three Kings Day event with District Leader Julia Rodriguez . Nearly 200 participants enjoyed lunch, a magic show, chorus music, and a performance of the Nativity scene by the Holy Family Church choir. Children in attendance received special toys, such as art sets doctor kits, stuffed animals, toy cars, puzzles, sporting equipment, and board games.
“Every year I look forward to hosting this celebration, which has become a cherished tradition for our Bronx families. Today we joined with our family, friends, neighbors, and community leaders to celebrate Three Kings Day and reflect on its significance. I wish everyone health, joy and prosperity in the New Year,” said Senator Klein.
Three Kings Day commemorates the biblical story of the Three Kings, also known as the Three Wise Men, who followed the star of Bethlehem to bring gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh to baby Jesus.
“It’s both heartwarming and satisfying to see not only a great holiday tradition re-enacted so well, but also seeing the excitement and joy on children’s faces as they receive their presents. It makes all the effort that goes into this annual event so worth it. I want to thank everyone who worked so hard behind the scenes, and those who played all the characters in the production. Well done!” said Assemblyman Sepulveda.
“I am really happy that Senator Klein and Assemblyman Sepulveda are doing this for our area. Despite the weather, many families came to enjoy a great day and organized event,” said District Leader Julia Rodriguez.
