Cinco de Mayo: Homewood’s Best Margaritas

Cinco de Mayo, or the fifth of May, is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. Many people outside Mexico mistakenly believe that Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican independence, which was declared more than 50 years before the Battle of Puebla. In the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage; many Americans celebrate by heading to their local Mexican restaurant to have a margarita or two.

Here’s a look at what’s happening in Homewood on Cinco de Mayo:
