It’s May 5th which means many people will be celebrating the Mexican holiday of Cinco De Mayo!
In The United States Cinco De Mayo has become a day to celebrate Mexican-American culture and heritage.
However, Cinco De Mayo commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory against the French on May 5, 1862. It’s often confused with Mexican Independence Day, which is elaborately celebrated in Mexico from September 15 to 16.
Local restaurants and liquor stores are very busy around the holiday. Many of them prepare for the holiday by bringing in extra employees and stocking up on traditional Cinco de Mayo beer and Tequila.
Local police departments are reminding residents to be responsible while celebrating.
