Best Cinco de Mayo Celebrations in the U.S.

Even though pretty much everyone in the US knows about the fun to be had on Cinco de Mayo, the actually origins of the date might not be quite as well known.

The original Cinco de Mayo occurred way back in 1852. On that day, the 5th of May, the Mexican army unexpectedly won a huge fight, called the Battle of Puebla, against the French. This victory, played an important part in the histories of both Mexico and the United States, indirectly.
