The holiday of Three Kings or Trzech Króli (January 6) marks the end of the Christmas season in impressive style throughout Poland. A wholly Catholic holiday, 3 Kings honours Kaspar, Melchior and Balthazar, the three wise men who visited Jesus at his birth. Celebrations will include a parade welcoming the wise men, with characters passing out candy and children dressed in colours signifying Asia, Africa and Europe (the respective homelands of the wise men).  This is an event that has become part of the cultural tradition of the city. A total of about 500 volunteers from Poznań's schools, musicians, scouting teams, non-governmental organisations, and private companies all get involved in the preparation of the day. Every year, it gathers around 5,000 to 15,000 participants.
