In Mexico, Cinco de Mayo is primarily observed in the state of Puebla where General Zaragoza’s lead the country to triumph over the French invasion and bolstered the resistance movement.
Here in the United States we have embraced this day as a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage. Classrooms and communities across the country hang paper banners, cook up delicious food and share stories and dance from this celebrated culture.
If you are looking for resources to get your celebration started, look no further. We have great resources on history, celebrated figures, climate and travel.
