History:Festival﹕Cinco de Mayo

【明報專訊】Cinco de Mayo (5月5日節), or the fifth of May, commemorates the Mexican army's 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage in the United States, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations. Its traditions include parades, mariachi (墨西哥街頭樂隊) music performances, and street festivals in cities and towns across Mexico and the United States.
