Cinco de Mayo is often known as Mexico's Independence Day and it typically occurs on May 5th. Cinco de Mayo originated in the Mexican state of Puebla, where it commemorates a major battle against French forces during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). The holiday has since grown in popularity outside of Mexico and is celebrated in the United States with parades, festivals, and parties, and Fort Pierce is no exception.
