Cinco de Mayo, Batalla de Puebla

Puebla may be home to the central celebration of Cinco de Mayo, but this is a holiday for the entire nation. May 5th ushers in commemorations of the battle of Puebla of 1862, honoring its pivotal outcome, a Mexican defeat of the French army. Traditionally, Cinco de Mayo in Mexico is celebrated with parades, special meals, and faithful recreations of the battle. Whether finding a party in Polanco, or venturing out to the Zocalo, you'll experience a dazzling array of costumes, cuisine, music, and performances.
