Miami sure knows how to have a parade, even when the temperatures dip.

And as South Florida woke up to cooler weather on Sunday, families broke out the jackets and sweaters for the Three Kings Day Parade.

The annual parade started around noon, marching through Little Havana on Calle Ocho from 4th to 17th avenues.

High school bands performed and police motorcades drove down the parade route, and local beauty pageant winners were on hand for photo opportunities.

But along with the fun, came the detours.

The parade ended at about 4 p.m., but Southwest Eighth Street remained closed until 6 p.m., Miami police said.
