Celebrating Cinco de Mayo? They’ve Got You Covered

Cinco de Mayo marks the May 5, 1861 victory of a vastly outnumbered Mexican army against French troops in the town of Puebla de los Ángeles. Unlike the Sept. 16 independence day, Cinco de Mayo is not a national holiday in Mexico – but in the U.S., it has become numero uno for celebrating Mexican food, drink and culture. Try one of these fiestas to get your party started.
