A colorful Three Kings observance in Brewster

BREWSTER – Christmas activities have concluded in Putnam County following Wednesday’s Three Kings celebration that attracted people of all ages, religions and backgrounds to the Studio Around the Corner in Brewster

County and town officials joined moms, dads, grandparents and children who celebrated the return of Santa to the North Pole.

For thousands of Latin American children, the holiday gift-giving and receiving doesn’t officially end until the 12th day of Christmas known as the “Feast of the Epiphany” or “Three Kings' Day.”  

Festival organizer Norma Pereira explained the festival was held to “celebrate the queen and king in all of us. Each person has his or her own majesty and we acknowledged that everyone has a gift to give.”

A variety of events and activities including the reading of poetry, holiday stories in both English and Spanish, craft demonstrations, live holiday music performed by renowned Latin American guitarist Samuel Arriola and a visit from the three Wise Men themselves highlighted the festival that was attended by 150 residents.
