Vice Chairwoman Audrey M. Edmonson joined Public Defender Carlos Martinez during the annual Three Kings Day Parade on Sunday, January 15, 2012. The parade, which took place along Calle Ocho from 4th Avenue to 22nd Avenue, celebrates the biblical Magi, or Wise Men, who traveled to Bethlehem to present gifts to the Christ child. Residents lined the streets of Calle Ocho to see local personalities, community leaders, mascots, and marching bands.

Traditionally, Three Kings Day is celebrated by many Latin American cultures on January 6, commemorating the visit of the Three Wise Men.
