The Three Kings Celebration hosted by the Collier County Republican Executive Committee was held Sunday, January 5th, at the Florida Sports Park.

Volunteers delivered over 11,000 doorhangers with invitations to registered voters in Collier County. 590 rsvp’s were received to enter into our database, and approximately 300 people attended.

The Three Kings celebration is a Christmas tradition in the Latin community that is a remembrance of the three kings visiting the baby Jesus in the bible story.

Gifts were provided for children, along with petting zoo’s child games, fire trucks, clowns with balloons, and drawings for the adults.

Great enthusiasm was shared in celebrating Hispanic values are Republican Values.
