We invite the community to celebrate our Annual CINCO DE MAYO FESTIVAL on East Lake St. (between 27th Ave and 29th Ave) in South Minneapolis, next Sunday May 5 2019. This outdoor event is hosted by El Nuevo Rodeo, La Raza 95.7 FM & 1400 & 1470 AM, the #1 Spanish Radio in Minnesota, and Telemundo MN, affiliate of the largest Hispanic TV Network in the US.
One more time the Mexican Community will remember and celebrate The Battle of Puebla, it took place on 5 May 1862, near the city of Puebla during the French intervention in Mexico. The battle ended in a victory for the Mexican Army over the occupying French soldiers. Now, this is the most famous and enthusiastic Mexican Holiday in the United States!
This year the Festival will be from 12 pm - 8pm, but the party continues until the wee hours of the morning inside the installations of El Nuevo Rodeo. The Festival will have two stages; one on Lake St. and other one inside El Nuevo Rodeo, where there will be full menu and live entertainment all day long!
The Festival will offer to the public Traditional Mexican Presentations of Folkloric Dance, Mariachi and Aztec Dance, and including Mexican bands. There will also be tropical and Salsa bands, even Zumba, Karaoke and The Minnesota Twins with games and prizes for kids. And due to the public request! we are having this year the famous Luchas, a tradition in Mexico, the Luchadores will be performing live again!
And of course, we will have our beer garden of Corona and food stands from various vendors and local restaurants. Not only Mexican food will be sold, we are having American and international favorites too, from Town Talk Diner, Addis Ababa Restaurant and Gandhi Mahal!
This is a free event and we hope that you will join us in this celebration of culture, community, music, and cuisine!
