Best Places to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo (May 5th) is a holiday celebrated by Mexico's victory against France under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza. The victory in Puebla has been a symbol of Mexico's resistance to foreign domination. It was first celebrated in the state of California in the USA. For Mexican people in America, this celebration is a way to be proud of their Mexican heritage.
