Next Saturday, December, 18th 2010, at 8:00pm, children and families are invited to participate in the official inauguration of the giant Nativity Scene that will be placed at Plaza Mariano Moreno (Avenida de Mayo and Luis Saenz Peña). It will be a nice opportunity to have their Christmas pictures taken. The Nativity will be exhibited from December 13th, 2010 to January 6th, 2011.

Designed and built by renowned sculptor Fernando Pugliese, the Manger is made up of fifty impressive life-size figures, which recreate the spirit of Christmas in a striking work. 

After the Nativity Scene is inaugurated and blessed, a traditional Christmas concert will be presented by the Symphony Orchestra of the Federal Police and Chorus Onak Lagun, with over a hundred artists on stage, who will offer a Christmas repertoire and songs of the "Misa Criolla" . In this event, which aims to promote values such as unity and respect, distinctions will be given to different families representative of the country.

On Thursday January 6th, 2011, at 6:00 pm, the traditional caravan of the Magi will take place, finalizing at the Nativity Scene on Avenida de Mayo and Luis Saenz Peña. Throughout their journey, the Magi will give away toys and treats to all children present. Children and families are also invited to make their own Magi cards. The materials needed to assemble the cards will be provided, such as paper, markers, pencils, so each family can create their own.
