Cinco de Mayo Celebrations


Cinco de Mayo celebrations kick off a day early in South Bend.

Students at Greene Intermediate celebrated Hispanic culture today with a little song and dance.

Cinco de Mayo is an important day for Mexican communities because it marks Mexico’s defeat of a French army on May 5th, 1862.

Modern Cinco de Mayo celebrations started in the United States back in 1967 by a group from California State.
