The 35th annual Fiesta Old Town Cinco de Mayo is taking over Old Town this weekend and local businesses across San Diego are sharing their tips and tricks for your Cinco de Mayo fiesta planning. The fifth of may celebrates the day the Mexican Army beat France at the battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. The victory provided a significant morale boost to the Mexican people and came to serve as a symbol of the country's spirit and perseverance.

The provincial government is acknowledging one of Mexico's national holidays.

Fernando Mendez, General Manager of The Taco Stand, says they have a family-friendly place to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.




The Battle of Puebla pitted 2,000 Mexican troops against a French force of 6,000. That makes it flawless for both Cinco de Mayo and baseball season.

An email to Gonzaga University students warned against "cultural appropriation" on Cinco de Mayo, and said that the holiday has been abused by "non-Mexican individuals". Cities and towns with large Mexican-American populations have held parades, put on shows with mariachi music and folk dances, and enjoyed traditional food including mole poblano since the 1960s when Chicanos raised awareness around it. The celebration spread as Hispanic culture grew in the US, getting a commercial boost in the 1980s when restaurants and bars began cashing in on the event. And if you're a Kentuckian who took to the Internet to find out when the Mexican commemorative holiday is, you're reportedly among the majority.
