New Year's Eve
All of the special dinner and dance events you might expect are held tonight, in restaurants, hotels, private homes, and (you guessed it) the Jardin. Things start picking up about 10:30pm, and by midnight the square is packed with revelers of all ages, dressed in everything from jeans to tuxedos, drinks and party blowers at the ready. The New Year is counted down and welcomed in with a grand display of fireworks, and everyone goes home happy.
Don't forget the grapes! To take part in an old Mexican tradition, buy a bunch to share with your friends. At midnight, eat one at each stroke of the clock for good luck in the coming year.
