2009 Cinco de Mayo Celebration

It was when the Mexicans defeated the French, damn it. Try to keep up.

Who cares if Cinco de Mayo isn’t a federal holiday in Mexico? Around these parts, it’s still cause for celebration. And even if you don’t know the historical reason for the party (it has something to do with the Battle of Puebla and the defeat of the French army), Comité Patriótico Mexicano’s 2009 Cinco de Mayo Celebration at Miller Outdoor Theatre will have you feeling festive. The slew of performances, which include mariachis and Mexican folkloric dancers, begins at 3 p.m. You’ll want to stick around after sunset, though, for a couple of marquee musical acts. The five young sisters of Houston’s Las Fenix will play a Tejano set at 8:30 p.m., and Los Mier will close the evening with norteño from south of the border at 9:30 p.m. Given that this is all free, you’d have to be pretty pendejoto miss out. 100 Concert Drive.

Sun., May 3, 3 p.m., 2009
