Tis the season! It's finally December in the Borderland and that means it's time for some festive events to get that perfect selfie and to get you into the holiday spirit! Personally, I love this time of year; all the lights, the decorations, it really warms my cold little heart.

This holiday season, unlike last year, the Sun City is offering tons of events across the city for you to be merry and joyous. If you're on a budget but still want to join in on the festivities, well don't worry because I got you! Here are six fun, family friendly, and most importantly- FREE events! Most of them are markets, but they are holiday markets and it's perfect for your Christmas shopping especially if you want to support local!

Free Movies at Sunland Park Mall

At Sunland Park Mall, you can join them every Friday for "Very Merry Movies, at the Backyard Cinema" and you're allowed to bring your blanket, chair and even your stuffed animal! This weekend's showing is "Elf"

The Plaza Theater will not be showing free movies this weekend.
