As the Three Kings travel to Bethlehem they will make a brief stop in Osceola County for a press conference scheduled for 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 9, at their castle in Osceola County (Medieval Times, 4510 W Vine Street, Kissimmee).
Osceola County Commissioners have invited the Three Kings to help them make the formal announcement of the celebration of the Three Kings Day Festival in Osceola County, which will be Sunday, Jan. 10.
The Three Kings will be represented by elected officials:
• St. Cloud Mayor Nathan Blackwell
• Kissimmee City Commissioner Jim Fisher
• Osceola County School Board Member Julius Melendez
Three Kings Day, or “El Día de los Reyes”, is a holiday celebrated around the world by different cultures as a way to remember the three Wise Men as they brought their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to the baby Jesus.
Also, the Three Kings are bringing an early present to one of Central Florida’s community service agencies. On behalf of the Hispanic Business Council of Osceola, the Three Kings will bring two $5,000 scholarship donations to the Hispanic Heritage Scholarship Fund of Metro Orlando, for a total of $10,000. Students from Osceola County receiving these scholarships will be attending this press conference.
The Three Kings are not be alone; they will be joined by other Osceola County and city of Kissimmee commissioners, elected officials, community leaders, sponsor representatives, Board Members of the Hispanic Business Council and organizers of the festival.
Celebrating its 16th year, Three Kings Day in Osceola will be on Sunday, Jan. 10, at 10 a.m. in Old Town and promises to be a day of joy and happiness for many kids and families in these difficult times.
