More About Cinco de mayo

A holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s May 5, 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War.

Mexico celebrates with more historical traditions including military parades, recreations of the Battle of Puebla and other reenactments.

Downtown Los Angeles's annual Fiesta Broadway began in 1990, and it's billed as 'the largest Cinco de Mayo celebration in the country.'


Although everyone loves tacos and margaritas, the official dish of Cinco de Mayo is considered mole poblano.
