The Three Kings Parade, Beginning of Carnival Time (the final scene in the Old Market Square eastern side). On 6 January 2013, Epiphany colorful procession passed through the streets of Poznan under the patronage of Abp. Stanislaus Gadecki and President Richard Grobelny (beginning at midday in Liberty Square). It is a great opportunity to have a sing-along in a Christmassy atmosphere. Participants, as every year, received colorful paper crowns and songbooks. They led the Three Wise Men on horseback surrounded by rows of students. The Three Kings / Three Magi stayed in Jerusalem and later went to Bethlehem where they worshiped Baby Jesus and made the gifts to Him (historical show). The biggest attraction: the winner of a charity auction king Casper was riding on a well liked by all camel Chester from the Gobi desert. At the end of the carnival pageant all participants had an opportunity to attend mass in the Franciscan Church on the Przemysl Hill.
