This weekend will see lots of partying for Monday’s Cinco de Mayo (“5th of May” in English) celebration.

A day of Mexican heritage and pride, Cinco de Mayo commemorates an initial victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

Show your solidarity and enjoy the festivities!

    Cinco de mayo was a good day for the state of Puebla…but a year later the french came back and whooped that a$$ and ruled over Puebla for 5 years. WOW lets celebrate the fact that we held the FRENCH from taking over for a year…the FRENCH..you have got to be kidding me but go ahead and celebrate your americanized mexican holiday. is it cool that we are getting recognition as a race? YES but come on people know what you are celebrating. Yes it is a holiday in PUEBLA..so a state holiday not a NATIONAL MEXICAN HOLIDAY like the 16th of September. This day is virtually ignored in Mexico besides in Puebla and a couple other places.
