Cinco De Mayo; What’s it all About? Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

Cinco De Mayo is also known as El Dia de la Batalla de Pueble. It marks a day in history when the Mexican army celebrated it’s victory over France in 1862 at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco- Mexican War . It was a battle that lasted 6 years.  Since the defeat, the United States has adopted the holiday turning it onto a celebration of Mexican heritage and culture. It is very popular where there are higher concentrations of the Mexican-American populations, like Los Angeles, Houston, and Chicago. It is also observed in many cities across the states. In 2005, Congress issued a concurrent resolution to the President for appropriate ceremonies and activities. Celebrations on this day include festivals, dancing,  Mexican food, drinking and mariachi performances. In Second Life it is also observed by Many.

 I found a couple of places having activities for Cinco De Mayo so grab your camera and let's go party hopping. You will most likely meet new people, get involved in the festivities and have fun!
