What is Cinco de Mayo?
Cinco de Mayo marks the anniversary of the Mexican military's victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in the French-Mexican war of 1862. Over the years, Cinco de Mayo has lost its emphasis in Mexico, observed mainly in the state of Puebla; however, in the United States it has grown to become a holiday to recognize Mexican culture and influence. Cinco de Mayo events include joyous parades and parties boasting traditional music, dancing and of course, food!
