Cruz celebrates Three Kings' Day with area children


HARRISBURG, Jan. 9 – State Rep. Angel Cruz, D-Phila., joined area children at the Norris Square Children's Center on Jan. 5 to celebrate Three Kings' Day.

"This is a festive holiday marked with music, food and fun. It's a day to celebrate traditions and culture and I'm happy to have hosted local festivities," Cruz said.

During the event, Cruz joined those portraying the three kings, Melchor, Gaspar and Baltazar, to distribute hundreds of gifts to children who attended the event.

"I could find no better way to celebrate the 12th Day of Christmas than to think of children in need," Cruz said. "Some of these children may not have received any gifts during the holidays, so to close out the season by seeing so many smiling faces is truly humbling."
