What is Cinco de Mayo?
“Cinco de Mayo” (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a celebration held each on the 5th of May. It is celebrated in the United States and in Mexico.
This celebration of Mexican culture and heritage grew in popularity in larger communities of Mexican American population in areas like Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston initially and then spread across the whole of the United States in the later parts of the century.
As the city gets busy for the “Cinco de Mayo” celebrations, being a part of the celebrations of the latino culture & cuisine helps big time at the Fiesta !
