Considering the large numbers of first, second, and third generation Mexican immigrants living in Los Angeles, it’s no surprise that this city has its fair share of lively Cinco de Mayo celebrations.
Here are 5 unforgettable ways to celebrate Cinco de Mayo 2012.
Cinco de Mayo at Olvera Street: Olvera Street (one of the oldest streets in Los Angeles) is home to a vibrant Mexican marketplace that dates back to the 1930s.
Each Cinco de Mayo, this area is a hub for revelers—come enjoy the Mariachi music, authentic Mexican cuisine, and handicrafts for sale.
Cinco de Mayo Fiesta and Classic Car Show in Santa Monica: Each year, the City of Santa Monica hosts a Cinco de Mayo celebration and classic car show in Virginia Avenue Park. Enjoy live entertainment, games and activities for kids of all ages, and delicious food.
Cinco de Mayo at the Los Angeles Farmer’s Market: The Los Angeles Farmer’s Market, located adjacent to The Grove shopping complex, hosts an annual Cinco de Mayo celebration with live music and food. While you’re there, stock up on essentials (and fabulous non-essentials) from the local vendors.
Lucha Vavoom at the Mayan Theater: This amazing troupe of burlesque performers and comedic Mexican wrestlers put on an entertaining Cinco de Mayo performance at the Mayan Theater. It’s best to book your tickets in advance.
Fiesta Broadway: The nation’s largest Latino market will host a large Cinco de Mayo celebration on April 29th, 2012. Come enjoy authentic Mexican cuisine, professional music groups, and lots of other revelers!
