Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow! Do you have plans to celebrate or go out with friends and family?
If you are unfamiliar with the holiday, you may ask yourself what are we celebrating on May 5th? Some people think Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s Independence Day but this is inaccurate. Cinco de Mayo is actually the day to commemorate the underdog Mexican Army’s victory over the invading French forces led by Napoleon III, at the Battle of Puebla, in Mexico on May 5, 1862. The Mexican Army had a fraction of the amount of soldiers that the French Army did and the unexpected victory, with relatively few Mexican casualties, really boosted the Mexican morale. This surprising defeat of a very powerful nation called for celebration then and the holiday continues to be celebrated today.
San Antonio is rich in Mexican culture and we can all appreciation great food, great fun and a reason to celebrate with one another. The downtown Market Square area is a great hotspot for Cinco de Mayo festivities. We encourage all of our friends and family to have a great time this upcoming weekend as the warmer weather heats up the city and we at Becker Properties remind you to party responsibly!
Happy Cinco de Mayo to all!
