Why Celebrate Cinco de Mayo?

Cinco de Mayo is also called “El Día de la Batalla de Puebla” (The Day of the Battle of Puebla). Although it’s often confused as Mexico’s Independence Day, Cinco de Mayo commemorates Mexico’s unlikely victory over France on May 5, 1862, near Puebla, Mexico during the Franco-Mexican War.

Cinco de Mayo is a minor holiday in Mexico. However, cities across the United States—especially those with a large Mexican-American population—go all-out to celebrate Mexican culture and heritage on May 5.

It’s a great opportunity to learn about and experience some Mexican culture with your kids, wherever you are.
