Cinco de Mayo is an important event in the proud history of our sister country. This year marks the 160th year anniversary of Mexico’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, led by General Ignacio Zaragoza. The event was held at Plaza Agustin on the downtown street that shares his name, Zaragoza.
