El Museo del Barrio's annual Three Kings Day celebration, which usually brings giant puppets, live camels, music and dancing to the streets of East Harlem on Epiphany, is going virtual this year.

The free online festivities will be streaming tomorrow, Wednesday, January 6, on the museum's Facebook, YouTube, and website.

The party kicks off with a morning event (11am-noon) for schools and families, featuring storytelling, plus a musical performance and workshop by music group Los Pleneros de la 21.


The evening event (6pm-7pm) is for all ages and includes a parranda by Beto Torrens live from Puerto Rico, a special appearance by actor and comedian Victor Cruz’s animated character TITA, and lots more.


And, yes, the museum's famous giant puppets will be making cameos.
