Cinco de Mayo Parade
Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not a commemoration of Mexico’s Independence Day. Cinco De Mayo is actually a celebration of Mexican culture created by Mexicans in the U.S. during America’s Civil War. Today, there’s no better celebration of Mexico’s culture on May 5th than the New York Cinco de Mayo Parade.
Thousands of New Yorkers line the streets from 110th to 97th to watch floats, mariachi bands, and celebrities in this colorful parade.
