Día de los Reyes Magos

The Day of the 3 Wise Men (literally, Magic Kings) is celebrated on January 5th is arguably celebrated more here in Catalunya than Christmas.
On this night, there is a big parade (Cabalgata) where the 3 Kings make their way through the city streets and candy is thrown to the kids. 

The Montjuic Fountain

It is traditional during Christmas to watch the Magic Fountain show at the Palace of Montjuïc, where they have a special edition of the fountain show with dancers and Christmas music.
