174. Cinco De Mayo

Had a lovely time in cinco de mayo celebrations @ Anaheim last weekend.

“CINCO DE MAYO” mean May 5 in Spanish, is the Anniversary day of the Battle of Puebla,  national holiday in Mexico in honor of a military victory in 1862 over the French forces of Napoleon III. The day is celebrated in Mexico as celebrations of their victory.

Cinco de Mayo has also become a festive holiday in parts of the United States with large Mexican American populations. Celebrations in the United States often extend beyond the actual day to encompass an entire week, with parades and festivals that include music, dancing, and food.

It was a great exposure to learn about Mexican festive celebrations and their culture. The event reminded me of small fairs held in Indian towns for Ganesh Chaturthi and Desara festival.
