A Three Kings Day celebration was held at the Owen Dolen Recreation Center in Westcheseter Square on Friday, January 9. The feast saw the biblical story of the epiphany enacted by local children, and included popular figures like Mary, Joseph, and of course the Three Wise Men in what is an annual tradition.

Mary was played by Uchenna Obumneme-Akuieme (l) and Joseph played by Anthony Francis.
