Cinco de Mayo: L.A. Guide

Nearly half the people of Los Angeles are Latinos according to the US Census of 2010. Chances are most of those Latinos are Mexicanos igual que yo, which means there’ll be plenty of Cinco de Mayo celebrations to choose from in El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de Los Angeles del Rio de Porciúncula.

Nuestra ciudad will host a number of events guaranteed to satisfy your Cinco needs. We’re looking at concerts with no cover charge courtesy of Ceci Bastida and Bostich + Fussible. We’re talking about luchadores, taqueros, and live music at The Conga Room. We’re thinking about the farewell party to end all farewell parties with our friends at Mucho Wednesdays. AND MORE!

Remember this crash course in Mexican history before you down those shots of tequila: it’s the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, a small town in Mexico whose citizens fought off a battalion of French soldiers despite being outnumbered 2 – 1, in 1862. The country‘s 4th of July is the 16th of September. The “holiday” is also more popular in the U.S. than in Mexico and is more of an excuse to sell alcohol (re: St. Patrick’s Day).

One last piece of advice: leave the sarapes and sandalias at home.
