At YTE Events & Balloon Decor, we are proud to be part of the vibrant cultural celebrations that take place at Macy’s Citrus Park Mall. One such event is the annual Day of Kings, a cherished tradition in Latin culture where children eagerly await gifts from the three wise men.
A Tradition Honored
During this event, children leave a small box of hay under their beds for the wise men’s camels. Macy’s honors this tradition with their Dia De Los Reyos event, transforming the shopping experience into a festive celebration. The event is a testament to the rich Latin history and culture in the Tampa area, and we are thrilled to contribute to its success.
A Parade of Entertainment
Macy’s goes all out to make the Day of Kings event an unforgettable experience. The store comes alive with parades of entertainers, caricature artists, and stilt walkers. The highlight of the event is the arrival of the Three Kings, who pose for photos and hand out gifts to the delighted children.
Our team adds to the festive atmosphere with our unique balloon creations. We have stilt walkers dressed up in balloons resembling camels, much to the delight of the children. The sight of kids wanting to pet the balloon camels is a joy to behold.
A Celebration for All
The Day of Kings event is more than just a shopping day at Macy’s Citrus Park Mall. It’s a celebration filled with singing, dancing, and arts and crafts for the kids. The store buzzes with energy, with hundreds of people joining in the festivities. The stilt-walking dancers keep the mood upbeat, even taking selfies with the crowd from 10 feet in the air!
YTE Events & Balloon Decor is honored to partner with Macy’s staff to supply aspects of the celebration. It’s a fun, enjoyable event for everyone involved, and we look forward to being part of it each year.
Macy’s at Citrus Park Mall held a lunchtime event honoring a tradition from Latin culture where the three wise men come and visit children. The children, eagerly awaiting a gift from each of the wise men, will leave a small box of hay for the camels underneath their beds. Macy’s honored this tradition with their Dia De Los Reyos event.
Macy’s put together an amazing event. There were parades of entertainers, caricature artists, stilt walkers, and they even had the Three Kings show up for photos and to hand out gifts. The procession of dancing stilt walkers was led around by a Latin percussion band and they even had two stilt walkers dressed up in balloons looking like camels.
Here is a video of some of the fun from the event:
There was singing, dancing, arts and crafts for the kids, an artist, a DJ, people taking pictures with the 3 Wisemen, hundreds of people in the store, everyone was in a great mood, and it was like a party.
The band was amazing, they played and sang almost nonstop. The stilt walking dancers kept the mood festive. They were even taking selfies with the crowd 10 feet in the air. And the stilt walking balloon camels were just the perfect touch for the kids. There must have been 10 kids wanting to pet the balloon camels all at once when they finally stopped upstairs. It was a hoot!
It is an event Macy’s puts on yearly in the Tampa area in support of the areas rich Latin history and culture. For more information on all the great things Macy’s does for their guests, check out this link about Macy’s events Macy’s In-Store & Special Events!
