About Community

Rent a Local Friend is a global platform that connects people who love to travel with those who are passionate about where they live and have a good story to tell. More than a simple walk, we seek the sharing of local tips and contents, information that will not be revealed in any travel book or guides and the most importantly thing, the essence of each culture and the local spirit. All of this is done in a spontaneous, genuine, collaborative and interest-based way, allowing people to connect with those who have similarities or characteristics in common, providing a complete immersion in the next destination to be known.

About Parade of the three Wise Men

In Spain, one of the biggest events of the holiday season is the arrival parade of the Three Wise Men. There is a long tradition for having the children receive presents by the three \"Reyes Magos\" on the night of January 5 (Epiphany Eve) or morning of January 6. Almost every Spanish city or town organises cabalgatas in the evening, in which the kings and their servants parade and throw sweets to the children (and parents) in attendance. Madrid organizes the biggest parade of all, with different floats and and artistic performers, broadcasted nationally on TV.<br>
