Cinco De Mayo — Americans Celebrate The Battle Of Puebla

Mariachi de Brown Because somebody’s got to do it. On May 5, 1862 the Mexican army prevailed in an unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla. This made Americans thirsty. Thus we have Cinco de Mayo.

Head downtown today for the In Downcity Cinco de Mayo block party. There will be food trucks including Poco Loco Tacos and Mijos Tacos, the Rock and Roll Yard Sale and activities for kids.

Check out the Mariachi de Brown, Brown University’s official mariachi band and Rhode Island’s only mariachi band, since 2005.

Noon to 6pm, Sunday, May 5, Westminster between Eddy and Clemence Streets, directions
