Cinco De Mayo means the 5th of May in Spanish and is a national holiday observed in Mexico. It is the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla in which a victory against Napoleon III’s French forces occurred in 1862.
In Mexico, this day is celebrated with parades and reenactments of the battle. In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is observed with week long festivities including music, dancing and lots of great food!
Avatars from around the globe in Second Life like to join in the festivities by throwing parties of their own. Here are some locations where you can celebrate Cinco de Mayo, virtual style.
