Cinco de Mayo is upon us!

Often mistaken for Mexican Independence Day (which is September 16), May 5 is the day Central Americans commemorate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

There will be lots of ways to celebrate the holiday today in and around Bensonhurst. Over in Sunset Park, NYC Parks will be hosting a family friendly celebration of Mexican culture with music, dance, and crafts at the Sunset Park Recreation Center (43rd Street at 7th Avenue), from 4pm – 7pm.
