Cinco de Mayo (fifth of May) is right around the corner. Celebrate Cinco de Mayo this year with a bit of Mardi Gras sparkle by adding beads, costumes and red hot lights to your party!
Cinco de Mayo celebrates the day Mexican forces overcame the French army. Even though it is not the true Independence day for Mexico (September 16th), Cinco de Mayo is widely celebrated in Mexico and here in the United States by people regardless of their nationality. This day has become a holiday to celebrate Mexican culture and the wonderful food and beverages it encompasses! Restaurants and homes will be filled with margaritas and scents of simmering Mexican dishes for Cinco de Mayo. Mix up a batch of your favorite margaritas, on the rocks or frozen, and invite some friends over to celebrate.
