Cinco de Mayo EventThis family oriented, free CINCO DE MAYO festival is hosted by Norsan Media. It celebrates Cinco de Mayo, May 5th in Spanish, a holiday that commemorates the date of the Mexican army 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). A relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with a large Mexican-American population. Regional Mexican live music is a very important element of this event and has included world renown artists. Live events such as Lucha Libre, Children’s Fun Zone, and Cultural Dance presentations give this festival a special and attractive flare. This festival is always FREE and open to people of all backgrounds and ages!
