Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in a city that likes to party - The Magic City. This day offers a great excuse to eat delicious Mexican food and celebrate the city's unique Mexican-American culture.

What is Cinco de Mayo?

This annual holiday happens on the 5th of May to honor Mexico's victory over the French Empire in 1862. In the united states, this celebration is widely considered a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas such as the city of Miami and San Antonio where there is a substantial Mexican-American population. Many people outside of Mexico city often mistake this day for a celebration of Mexican independence day, however, that is celebrated on September 16.

The day commemorates a battle of Puebla where 6,000 French troops were sent out to attack Puebla de Los Angeles as a result of napoleon iii seeking the opportunity to carve an empire out of Mexican territory. Today, participants mark the occasion with parades, parties, mariachi music, Mexican folk dancing, and traditional foods with some of the largest festivals being held in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Houston. In Mexico, this commemoration is primarily observed in the state of Puebla where the unlikely victory occurred.
