What is Cinco de Mayo any way?  It’s a yearly celebration held on May 5, commemorating the anniversary of Mexico’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.  Here in the US, we have Americanized the holiday as another excuse to drink margaritas and eat tacos on a week night, along side celebrating Mexican culture.

Below you’ll find quite a few places offering up sweet deals and freebies this year.

We grabbed some of these from the folks over at Offers.com, and have come up with a full list of Cinco de Mayo deals and free stuff Florida residents can enjoy this year.   Most of the deals listed below are for national chains, so you don’t have to live in Florida to take advantage of those.   As with any offers, be sure to check with your local franchise as all offers aren’t always available at all locations.

If you see something we missed, let us know so we can add them to our list.

Cheers!
