Join the Fiesta in South Florida this Cinco de Mayo at These Amazing Local Spots

Cinco de Mayo

Historically, Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that recognizes the famous Battle of Puebla of 1862 in which the Mexican army proved victorious over the French. However, here in the United States, Americans have adopted the holiday as a way to celebrate all the wonderful foods, drinks, and customs that the Mexican culture has to offer. If you are searching for the best way to celebrate this May 5th in South Florida, you have come to the right place.
