Cinco de Mayo (pronounced: [?si?ko ðe ?ma?o] is rolling around again. This annual celebration commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over France on 05/05/1862. However, most Americans just think of it as a great day to get Mexican food and have a celebration. Who doesn’t love eating Mexican food? Even at 7am in the morning; Huevos rancheros does sound tasty. That being said, there are plenty of places in the metro Phoenix area to go to join in the festivities. Take a moment to read more about the history of this celebration here.
