Egipto's Three Kings Festival 2015

An old man named Reginald and a little girl dance for coins at Egipto's Three Kings Festival.
A few scenes from the Egipto neighborhood's annual Three Kings Festival, which kicked off today and continues thru Monday. Altho the event is nominally Catholic, it's basically gluttony, alcohol and loud music. Egipto is a rough neighborhood located above La Candelaria. The festival is being held on La Circunvular Avenue.

This year's was the festival's 100th anniversary, reports El Tiempo.

Cops frisk young men as they enter the festival.

Don't look for health food.
