Celebrate Cinco de Mayo
Cinco De Mayo      Although the weather is unseasonably cool, there’s a party happening today, as crowds fill Market Square—also known as El Mercado—in downtown San Antonio during the Annual Cinco de Mayo celebration. The party draws an average of 50,000 people.
     Dinner under a tree or on the hoof can be sublime. Mariachi bands will play traditional Spanish tunes as food smoke rises, sending aloft the aroma of savory fajita meat and hand-patted gordita tortillas as they simmer on outdoor grills, watched carefully by abuelitas under tent canopies. It’s a festive touch, served up alongside Mexican beer—the kind peddled by “the most interesting man in the world.”
     Cinco de Mayo marks a strategic Mexican victory on May 5, 1862, when a quickly assembled army of about 2,000 men beat back a French force three times its size.
     The French attacked Puebla de Los Angeles, east of Mexico City.
     The win added momentum to Mexico's progress in its war with France, which conceded six years later.
    “Texans of all backgrounds should share the sense of pride in the victory," declares Yvette Ramirez, President of the San Antonio Farmers Market Plaza Association.
