The same company that created the recent Calaverandia (Day of the Dead) theme park in Guadalajara is putting together a Christmas-themed spectacle in the same location – the Parque Alcalde.
At Navidalia, patrons will be able to enjoy around 30 attractions, including a massive multi-media piñata, an 18-meter-tall Christmas tree, giant Reyes Magos (Wise Men), an ice walk (and rink), train ride, Christmas characters and much more.
The winter wonderland will showcase all the typical Christmas traditions, but accentuate Mexicans ones, its creators say.
The theme park will be divided into four main zones – the Mexican Posada, Nordic, European and Middle Eastern – and include 1.6 kilometers of walkways. A special feature of a visit to the park will be performances by Canticorum, a large orchestra and choir offering some of the best-loved Christmas carols and music from around the world.
Navidalia will be open December 13 though 25 (closed on December 24). Hours will be 7 p.m. to midnight , Sunday through Thursday; and 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets will cost 399 pesos for adults, 199 for children.
