Cinco De Mayo Celebrations in the Hub City

For those who must travel to get their Cinco de Mayo drink on, authorities suggest designating a sober driver, calling a cab or logging onto a ride-service app-anything other than climbing behind the wheel.

What exactly is Cinco de Mayo?

The commercialization of Cinco de Mayo by alcohol companies began in the 1980s.

"A lot of people from my state immigrate to the most important cities in the united states that is Los Angeles and NY, so the population of people from my state is very high in those places and they start celebrating the day of Cinco de Mayo", Vazquez says.

He added, "Economically, culturally, in our churches, our towns and cities across this country, the truth is that Mexican-Americans and Hispanic Americans as a whole make a difference in America every single day". Cortes tried to conquer the Aztec Empire with 500 men. "It is free. That is an exciting exhibit that dates back to the 1920's to the present of the Mexican festivals here along historic south 24th Street". In Waco, Texas, a college fraternity at Baylor University was suspended after throwing a Cinco de Mayo party where students reportedly dressed as construction workers and maids and chanted "Build that Wall", a reference to Trump's signature campaign promise.

Portugal makes history with Eurovision Song Contest win
Belarus' NaviBand will represent the country in the Eurovision Grand Final as a result of yesterday's second semifinal. She was selected to represent the United Kingdom via public vote during this year's Eurovision You Decide live final.

When does Mexico celebrate its independence?

Though not all Mexicans celebrate the holiday, some Latino leaders saw this as another way for Trump to slight the Latino community. The day is commemorated with celebrations of Mexican cuisine, culture and music.

The Cinco de Mayo parade is one of the largest in the Midwest.

It's been big in the United States since Mexican Americans raised awareness for it in the 1960s.
