Cinco De Mayo Catering

cinco de mayo catering

Cinco de Mayo, or the fifth of May, is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. Funny enough, it is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico, but in the United States, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage. Americans everywhere mark the occasion with parades, parties, mariachi music, Mexican folk dancing and, most importantly, traditional Mexican foods.
