Cinco de Mayo

A day to celebrate. 

Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of a Mexican military victory in 1862 over the French forces of Napoleon III. However, nowadays, Cinco de Mayo has become a day to celebrate Mexican culture and traditions. Cities and towns with large Mexican American populations, like Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, and others, commemorate the day with public parades, as well as home parties with mariachi music, folk dancing, and particularly delicious traditional Mexican food.
