In the Zócalo there will be a Christmas dinner put on by the city government. Surround yourself with others who are also celebrating — there will be over 10,000 dinners made. The dinner is free.

The city also began construction of an ice skating rink earlier this month. For those who are missing northern traditions, head over and skate underneath the 70m tall Christmas tree. Last year the rink was visited over 600,000 times.
