Celebrating Cinco de Mayo: Decor, dishes and cheers

In case you were wondering what America's been searching for on Cinco de Mayo, you're in luck!

Meanwhile in the U.S., Americans have embraced Cinco de Mayo as an opportunity to celebrate the heritage and culture of the neighboring country, but it has also taken on its own life. Mexico's most important national holiday is celebrated September 16, commemorating the Cry of Dolores (Grito de Dolores) that initiated the 1810 war for Mexican independence from Spain.

Here's some facts about Cinco de Mayo which commemorates the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. "The Battle of Puebla remains an important symbol of Mexican bravery and tenacity". At the end of the day, nearly 500 French soldiers were killed while Mexican forces lost less than 100 men. "Because of this, there are many instances when Cinco de Mayo becomes a holiday that is full of cultural appropriation".




The Cinco de Mayo celebrations go until 7 pm tonight and continue Sunday at Tautphaus park from 11 am to 7 pm. The celebration spread as Hispanic culture grew in the US, getting a commercial boost in the 1980s when restaurants and bars began cashing in on the event. In the US the date has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture.

Sometimes plans fall through, but AAA wants people to know that if they find themselves stranded and too intoxicated to drive on Cinco de Mayo, there is a fallback option.

Margaritas has been celebrating in anticipation for this day all week long.
