Cinco de Mayo is celebrated each year on May 5. This day commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla. In the United States, we’ve adopted this celebration.

Do you want to spend Cinco de Mayo drinking margaritas or eating tacos? Celebrate in Racine County by checking out these local restaurants.
