We refer to it as “drinko de mayo”. We take the celebration as a big party and accompany it with burritos, tequila, chips & dip…But Cinco de Mayo is more than “red, green and white” and “Viva México”. It is a celebration of Mexican pride and heritage, but why? What are we celebrating?
I had the opportunity of covering a story about this festivity for The Californian, the local Salinas newspaper.
Interested in learning about the date and about the participation Salinas, California, had in making this celebration a nationwide festival?
