Cinco de Mayo Festival


Editorial Review

As with all Cinco de Mayo-related writings, a disclaimer: The holiday marks the Mexican army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla, not Mexico’s Independence Day (that’s Sept. 16). In practice, though, Cinco de Mayo is an opportunity to celebrate Latino culture, and the Maru Montero Dance Company will see to that with a program of Mexican folk dances, pinatas, traditional arts and crafts, food and games for children from noon to 6 p.m.
