Happy Cinco de Mayo Celebration in Kitchener

cinco de mayo

The year is 1862. The French attack Mexico, deciding to conquer it over a dispute about non-payment of interest on a loan. Bullies. The Mexicans out-numbered and poorly equipped win an unlikely victory. The French go home.
This is an (unofficial) Independence Day. For all my self-employed, self-governing, independently-minded friends and me, this is our day. Cinco de Mayo Have a taco and a beer. Celebrate what determination and belief can do.

Celebrations start today at City Hall, with dancers and Mariachi bands taking to the streets…and continues to Saturday May 7th, at the Kitchener Market’s free family event.
