San Antonio Guide for Cinco de Mayo

May 5th, or Cinco de Mayo as it's known in Spanish, is the day that Mexico obtained its independence. While the events and celebrations are big in Mexico, because of the cultural variety and intermingling, they are also huge all over Texas. San Antonio is one city where the number and assortment of festivities is huge.

Downtown's Market Square is the central party place for Cinco de Mayo. Because this square is primarily a Mexican marketplace year-round, it makes sense that it is also the cultural center. The festival involves music, food, and entertainment, and provides plenty of shops to get a souvenir of the event or the city.

Another wonderful celebration place is Plaza Guadalupe. Music is performed from morning through night in this square, and the fun is family-centered. The vivid colors, sounds, and cheers will make you want to be part of the celebration as well. The celebration is free of charge, and is an extremely well-liked vacation spot on Cinco de Mayo.

Memorial Library houses a Latino organization of folk dance, and on Cinco de Mayo, this location will come to life. Situated on the campus of St. Mary's University, this center provides traditional folk dancing all year, but on Cinco de Mayo, the dancing explodes as dancers from all over Texas appear here to celebrate. If you like to observe or even take part in dancing, make certain you come here on this festive day.
