Hundreds took to Graham Avenue in Williamsburg on Sunday afternoon to celebrate Three Kings Day.
A group of costume-clad marchers walked the route from Metropolitan Avenue down to Broadway in honor of the 12th day of Christmas, when Christians believe the three wise men, or three kings, arrived in Bethlehem to present the baby Jesus with gifts.
The annual parade also included a tribute to slain police officer Rafael Ramos. Borough President Adams gave a short speech and asked for a moment of silence, and the crowd released dozens of blue helium balloons into the sky to mark Ramos’s memory.
The parade was organized by evangelical Staten Island Rev. Erick Salgado.
