Cinco de Mayo
Celebrated in honour of the victory over the French troops in the battle of Puebla, which took place in 1862, the festival is celebrated mainly in the United States of America and Canada.
You can celebrate Mexican culture with our Mexican Fiesta program, available in South Australia for pre-primary all the way through to upper secondary students. This program celebrates Mexican culture, and can be tailored to focus on dance, singing, percussion, instruments or a mixture of all these elements along with Spanish language.
On this day, parades take place at the origin of the battle, the town of Puebla, where people dressed up as Mexican soldiers to sing and dance. They also host events for professionals to play traditional Mariachi music and Mexican dances to memorialize the historical milestone of Mexico.
The colour of the Mexico flag, green, red and white are also often used in the designs of their clothes for the day. Speeches and reenactments are common on this day for tourists and residents to help them understand the history surrounding the event this festival celebrates.
