Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is a holiday relatively celebrated by Hispanics and Americans in America more than any other region. It's a day to celebrate Mexican culture with many taking part in fiestas, dancing, drinking margaritas, and cooking delicious latin dishes. Cinco de Mayo is Spanish for "The Fifth of May." It commemorates the first years of the American Civil War and the freedom and democracy many fought for, specifically the unexpected Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla. Orlando marks the special holiday with many events happening around town to celebrate Mexican heritage. Dine on Mexican food, attend a fiesta party, and spice up the day for Cinco de Mayo in Orlando with these events.
