Cinco de Mayo in Mexico, Spanish for "Fifth of May", is a yearly celebration held on May 5, which commemorates the anniversary of Mexico's victory over the Second French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. It has become a day synonymous with celebrating Mexican culture. Join us as we celebrate our neighbors to the south on this special day.
