Pinspiration: Cinco de Mayo Celebration Tips & Ideas

Cinco de Mayo originated in the American west in the 1860s as a way to commemorate the Mexican army’s victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.  As the event grew in popularity, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage.
