Cinco de Mayo - 5th of May Holiday
« on: May 01, 2014, 08:40:58 PM »

It is primarily a regional holiday celebrated in the Mexican state capital city of Puebla and throughout the state of Puebla, with some limited recognition in other parts of Mexico, and especially in U.S. cities with a significant Mexican population.
