Cinco de Mayo celebrations have grown in popularity throughout the United States. This day commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Today, the day is observed with parades, parties, and even educational activities. In schools throughout the U.S. students learn about our neighboring country’s culture and history.
