Cinco de Mayo / Batalia de Puebla (Battle of Puebla)

May 5

Cinco de Mayo is the official anniversary of the country’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862 — it is not Mexican Independence Day like many people think, which is on September 16th.

This day is typically celebrated with bands and parades with re-enactments of the final battle.

Cinco de Mayo / Batalia de Puebla (Battle of Puebla) is a civil holiday and is observed nationally.
