History of Cinco de Mayo

Everyone knows that Cinco de Mayo, or May 5, means fun, margaritas, and tacos in Farmingdale. But do you know the history of this momentous day? Our team at High Tide Taco Bar would like to take a deeper dive into this day of seemingly endless celebration, so continue reading to learn more! 

History of Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo literally translates to “the fifth of May” and is a Mexican Holiday honoring the Battle of Puebla, which occurred on May 5, 1862. One of the common misconceptions about Cinco de Mayo is that it is Mexican Independence Day. Mexico celebrates independence from Spain on September 16. While this holiday does not signify Mexico’s independence, the history behind this day shaped the landscape of North America as a whole. Cinco de Mayo is celebrated more in the United States by both Mexicans and Americans alike. Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican-American culture, so what better way to celebrate than with some delicious tacos in Farmingdale at High Tide Taco Bar?
