He says about 1,700 people per day are expected to take to the ice rink, which is completely free to use. The ice rink will be open to the public beginning this weekend and will become an annual tradition as they city intends to set up the additional rinks each year.

Local temperatures in Mexico City have dipped down to just below freezing, creating the perfect environment for outside ice skating rinks.
