As May is upon us, so is Cinco de Mayo. This year's celebration will take place on the weekend of May 9th and 10th at Civic Center Park from 10a.m. to 8p.m. The event will be highlighted by three large stages of entertainment; 350 exhibitors of food vendors serving up the best in Colorado Mexican Cuisine; a children's carnival; free samples and tons of giveaways; a green chili bowl cook off; interactive sponsor exhibits and much more. By design, the special cultural series highlights Latino cultures, while also incorporating the beauty of all cultures.  Historically, this date represents the victory of the Mexican Army over the French forces at the Battle of Puebla. It has become a day of celebration of Mexican pride and heritage. This will surely be a weekend of high spirits as we join together to celebrate a culture's rich and vibrant history.
