In Malaga we usually have a parade where children take part in costumes and it is always fun. But our parade may be on Jan. 5 or 6, depending on the year.

Found this for Barcelona:

The 3-king parades are always on Jan 5 evening, all over Spain. The 'Kings' arrive on the evening on Jan 5, and during the night they enter all the homes using their magic, leaving toys to the nice kids and coal to these who did not behave during the past year ;-)

In Barcelona, the 3 Kings usually arrive by boat, and the parade goes from the seaport to the city center. Its aimed to children, but very spectacular. See here: http://youtu.be/eRoq4LSch-0

Jan 6 is just a quiet festive day in town. Well, very busy for children and parents/grandparents, but like a quiet Sunday from a tourist point of view.
