ALMERIA is already looking ahead to Twelfth Night and the Three Kings. This is when Spanish children traditionally receive presents and Almeria city hall intends to make sure that nothing mars their special day.
This unfortunately happened in Nijar last January when the 20-year-old representing Baltasar died of head injuries after he was flung from the procession float by a low-hanging telephone cable. A 2013 Malaga procession also ended in tragedy when a child was run over by a float as he picked up a sweet from the ground.
With this in mind Almeria council has issued strict guidelines requiring the Kings’ floats to be fireproof and equipped with railings. The organisers will also be required to take out a €250,000 civil liability insurance policy, city hall announced.
