Several thousand people gathered in Mexico City’s huge Zocalo plaza to partake in a gigantic Three Kings Day cake known as a “rosca.” The monumental rosca weighed in at 9,371 kilos and measured 4,724 metres long before it was cut up into giant pieces and given to anyone wanting a piece. Some impoverished families came because without the rosca give away they would not have cake with which to celebrate the Three Kings Day feast. Others came to teach the gift of giving and sharing with the little ones in their families. The annual free event was sponsored by Mexico City’s local government.
