Cinco de Mayo Celebrations

Margaritas and mariachi music were on the menu for many people on Monday. People across Lexington celebrated Cinco de Mayo.

The holiday, which is celebrated increasingly here in the U.S., honors Mexican culture.

Cinco de Mayo celebrates the Battle of Puebla, which was between the French and Mexican armies back in 1862.

Mexican restaurants around town were packed Monday with people celebrating the holiday. Cinco de Mayo isn't celebrated in all parts of Mexico.

    Hey Phillip, Perhaps you should give up Christmas and Easter considering they are originally foreign to the American government system. After all we're not descendents of Roman Christians. Perhaps you should also not celebrate New Years Day considering criminals and "job stealers" celebrate that day as well. Stick to you opinions Phillip, but be consistent.

    Are you kidding me? This HOLIDAY has NOTHING, absolutely nothing to do with this country. What happened that is more important on this day? We put our first astronaut in space. No, lets celebrate something to with criminals coming into our country illegally, stealing jobs, and increasing crime. Yeah, way to waste space on your website with this garbage!
