While the holiday was originally created to celebrate an important win for Mexico in the Franco-Mexican War, many people mistakenly believe that Cinco de Mayo is the country’s celebration of independence. Mexico’s official day of independence is actually in September, but the party is much bigger on Cinco de Mayo.
Whether you’re looking to toss back some margaritas with your pals or want to take in some authentic Mexican culture, there’s plenty of fun to be had in and around Alexandria this year.
