Led by Master Marcão, Luz Divina Three Kings' Day Parade Group is one of the most traditional of the city with parades that have been happening since 1994. Comprising seven sexagenarian couples that have met in workshops sponsored by Saint Christopher church, in the Palmeiras Park neighborhood, the revelry announces the birth of Jesus Christ to the city and also in national festivals, such as the national meeting of Three Kings' Parade Groups in Aparecida do Norte, in São Paulo (a Brazilian state).

While women sing, men play instruments. All members wear simple red and white clothes appropriate for the atmosphere of the resort. "We have very good memories of revelry that passed by our house when we were kids. To redeem this memory, we decided to create our own", explains Julio Cesar de Almeida, the group counselor.
