December 31 - January 1
The New Year in Barcelona is rung in with parties around town, all pausing just before midnight, in order to eat 12 grapes during the last 12 seconds of the year for 12 months of good luck, as is the tradition throughout Spain.
The Procession of the Three Kings. The "Reyes Magos" arrive to Barcelona by boat to Port Vell and parade around town tossing candy to children, young and old, who fill the streets to greet them. The kids wake up to left by the Kings on the morning of January 6th.
