Join us May 5, 2022, from 5pm-8pm for Mexican-themed food, food demonstrations, children’s crafts, artisan items, and a Wall of History honoring families from Mexico! This is a fun-filled night of music, and costumed dancers, food vendors, and learning about a rich culture right here in our own town of New Albany.
The historical significance of Cinco De Mayo is the anniversary of Mexico’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Cinco de Mayo has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture and is not to be confused with Mexico’s Independence Day which is celebrated on September 16, and commemorates the Cry of Dolores in 1810, which initiated the war of Mexican Independence from Spain.
Bring the entire family and enjoy this culturally significant event at your Union County Heritage Museum. Cinco de Mayo Celebration is co-sponsored by the museum and “Expresiones Devinas ~ La Mision” the Hispanic and Latino Ministry of Glenfield United Methodist Church pastored by Marta Sobrino-Bolen . Others from the community participating include Cheva and Jeff Stanford and more joining to make this night memorable. For more information call the museum at 662-538-0014 or come by 114 Cleveland Street in New Albany, MS.
