Christmas and New Year holidays are especially cheerful on Rijeka's Korzo, where various cultural and entertainment programmes are held during November, December and the first half of January, with colourful stalls. Rijeka's caterers also join in with the atmosphere with their Christmas gastronomic offer, and the RI gastro is held at the same time, promoting delicacies with cod and chocolate. Every year, to the delight of the youngest ones, the Santa Claus train runs through the city centre, there is also the celebration of the feast of St. Nicholas and many other programmes in the open and in the closed venues of the city. Some of the many holiday programmes are turning on the Christmas lights, concerts in the ''Ivan pl. Zajc'' Croatian National Theatre, Christmas concert at the Cathedral... and the peak of the evening - New Year's Eve on Korzo with concerts and fireworks.
