Cinco de Mayo in New Jersey
Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican Army's successful defense of the city of Puebla against invading French forces in 1862. Many see this holiday as a time for fun and dance. It is a wonderful celebration of Mexican culture and its customs, foods and beverages, and music. We love the bright colors and music associated with Cinco de Mayo celebrations.
Here are a few ways for New Jersey families to share in the celebration of Cinco de Mayo and Mexican culture, food and music.
