One of the safer floats ready for Sunday's parade in Malaga. F. GONZÁLEZ
Families will be lining the streets in cities, towns and villages to catch a glimpse of the gift-bearing Magi, ‘Reyes Magos’, as they pass through.
Health and safety measures have been revised in Malaga following the tragic accident last year in which a six-year-old boy lost his life.
The floats have been fitted with a curved skirt frame to prevent sweets from falling under the wheels and qualified drivers and security workers have been taken on to ensure safety.
The intinerary around the city has also been modified to avoid the narrower streets.
