CINCO DE MAYO
The fifth of May is the perfect day to throw the first outdoor party of the year 2015! Why?
Because is Cinco the Mayo!
Celebrating Cinco de Mayo has become increasingly popular along the U.S.-Mexico border, in parts of the U.S., and in other cities worldwide like Shanghai that have a high population of people with a Mexican heritage or simply some Mexican restaurants 😉
In these areas the holiday is a celebration of Mexican culture, food, music, beverage and customs unique to Mexico.
But first of all you must understand what’s it all about, because Cinco de Mayo is probably the holiday most often celebrated that no one understands.
This celebration commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. A relatively minor holiday with some limited recognition throughout the country, in Puebla, where the famous battle took place, this holiday is a big deal. This doesn’t mean that is a celebration of Mexican independence, which is celebrated on September 16 and was declared more than 50 years before the battle of Puebla.
For some reason, Cinco de Mayo is celebrated more in the rest of the world, by Mexicans and foreigners alike, than it is in Mexico.
Now that you’re fully into it, you can make your Cinco de Mayo a wild success with our help!
Cinco de Mayo traditions usually include parades, mariachi music, Mexican food, live performances and street festivals, but since we are talking about a home party time this is a whole different story.
With our experience and thanks to our partners, we could organize all the details, from the food, to the kid’s activities, from the decoration to the music.
But if you’re not in the mood to host tens of people at your place, we can always search for a nice place around town where you’ll celebrate with margaritas and food specials!
The possibilities are endless with us.
