New Year 2013 Preparations at Zocalo, Mexico City

The Zócalo (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈsokalo], plinth) is the main plaza or square in the heart of the historic center of Mexico City. The plaza used to be known simply as the "Main Square" or "Arms Square," and now its formal name is Plaza de la Constitución (Constitution Square). However, it is almost always called the Zócalo today. Plans were made to erect a column as a monument to Independence, but only the base, or zócalo, was ever built. The plinth was destroyed long ago but the name has lived on.

Happy New Year 2013 :: Feliz Ano 2013

Hotels on the sidelines of the square were participating by putting up the lights.

For the new year's eve the whole square was blazing with decorations and lighting.

 This candle resembles an Indian symbol.

This is a huge square about 250 m x 250 m dimensions with  Palacio Nacional on one side and  Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral on another.

There were some scenes depicting stories.
