Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Los Angeles
By: Rick Orlov   |  Email: rick.orlov@dailynews.com

Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration of Mexican culture and heritage that takes place across the U.S. and regionally in Mexico, where it's known in the state of Puebla as El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (“The Day of the Battle of Puebla”). Cinco de Mayo is observed to commemorate the Mexican army's victory over the much larger, better-armed French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. The U.S. celebration of Cinco de Mayo originated in Mexican-American communities of the American West, Southwest and Northwest. Read on for our guide to Cinco de Mayo festivities throughout Los Angeles.
