Cinco de – My Oh My it’s a Saturday!

by Coachella Valley | May 5, 2018 10:38 am

Around this time of year, it’s a common question you hear in the American Southwest: “What are you doing for Cinco De Mayo?”

by Joseph Sciortino /

Well, this year it happens to be on a Saturday, which is perfect for your weekend party habits. We thought we’d put together a list of some of the local happenings on the fifth of May in the Coachella Valley, so you can celebrate Cinco de Drinko out on the town in style.

Though it’s not actually Mexican Independence day, Cinco de Mayo is still a very important holiday:

On the fifth of May 1862 a battle was fought at Puebla, Mexico. French forces were sent by Napoleon III to try and establish a state in Mexico, but Benito Juarez had a different idea. The Liberal government’s army took to the defense. Two opposing forces entered, and one came out victorious. The battle, which ended in a Mexican victory, is celebrated throughout Mexico and the United States on the Fifth of May.
