Today is May Day and it won’t be long before summer is here.
Sunday is Cinco De Mayo (or “Fifth of May”). For those of you who do not know what Cinco de Mayo actually is, this blurb from History.com should help:
Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). A relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage…
There will be a Cinco de Mayo festival on the National Mall on Sunday, May 5 from noon to 6 p.m. — rain or shine. The festival will feature traditional live music and dance, children’s arts and crafts workshops, food, games and activities for the entire family.
