The high cost of the Christmas lights show at the Parque Iberoamericano
National District Mayor David Collado says that the city government under former Mayor Roberto Salcedo spent RD$100 million on the month-long Christmas lights spectacular at the Parque Iberoamericano. He said the city government itself spent RD$35 million, while sponsors contributed the difference.
It is unknown whether the city government under Collado will continue holding the event, which although popular, was met with protests by local residents because of the traffic chaos and noise it created.
