The big holiday falls on a weekend this year and if you’re looking for Southwest Florida Cinco De Mayo deals for dining out, you’re in luck. There’s plenty to choose from.

What Is Cinco De Mayo?

If you’re going to be celebrating, at least you should know the reason why. Right? According to Wikipedia “Cinco de Mayo is a yearly celebration held on May 5 to celebrate Mexico’s victory over the Second French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, led by General Ignacio Zaragoza.” It’s also interesting to know that the holiday is a lot more popular in the United States than it is in Mexico. We just see it as a reason to party, case in point – why do we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Florida? Man shrug

May the Fourth

Before we even get to Cinco De Mayo, there’s May the Fourth, the annual Star Wars holiday. I don’t know if there’s any particular way to celebrate May the Fourth other than wear a Star Wars t-shirt when you go out on Saturday, I guess that’s enough. Here’s mine.
