Commonly confused with Mexican Independence Day, Cinco De Mayo has been celebrated in the United States since the early 1940’s. The holiday marks the day that Mexico was able to overtake the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862 and is now celebrated in honor of Mexican heritage and pride. Each year, thousands of Mexicans and Americans flock to local festivals, gatherings and parties, decorating themselves in the colors of the Mexican flag and celebrating with friends and loved ones. For years, Gatlinburg, Tennessee has been one of a handful of bustling cities with no organized Cinco De Mayo celebration, but this year Gatlinburg is going all out!
