Pretend to hover above the massive metro area of Mexico City and notice it’s very near the center of Mexico. Zoom back in and see the vast grid of streets crisscrossing Mexico’s capital city. These streets are bubbling over with history and tradition. Listen to live mariachi music as you pass through Plaza Garibaldi. Taste the tacos al pastor. Pay a visit to Chapultepec Park and the Palace of Fine Arts. Get lost in the labyrinth of culture. But don’t forget to check out the festivals in Mexico City—the perfect addition to any “things to do in Mexico City” list. Mexico City festivals are pods packed with world-class music and art. You can also take a quick trip to Tultepec for Feria Nacional de la Pirotecnica, (National Pyrotechnic Fair, aka the National Pyrotechnic Festival), a smorgasbord of fireworks.
