The Three Kings' Retinue is an outdoor event that re-enacts old Christmas mysteries and specifically the pilgrimage of the Three Wise Men to the Bethlehem crèche. It depicts a battle between good and evil, the Kings' entry into Jerusalem, their visit to Herod's palace, and the presenting of gifts to baby Jesus. The scenes are interspersed with collective carol singing with all retinue members joining in. The parade, held every Three Kings' Day on January 6, this year proceeds from Jeżyce to the city center.
