It might be Cinco de Mayo but all that means is May 5th…literally. For Los Angeleans however it’s a day that is marked with a lot of respect, perhaps more so than in any other region throughout the US.
LA has an abundance of Mexican-American communities. On May 5 you will find Fiesta Broadway abuzz with festivities as it turns into a street fair featuring vendor booths, music, games and more. indeed from 4th Street to Broadway (including Grand Park) from 11am to 6pm free festivities are open to the public.
Step up the beat at night and enjoy some great weekend activities as you bounce into the weekend thanks to the celebratory markings at the Plaza Kiosko. There you will be subject to lots of classic pastimes including piñatas, Folklorico dancers, alongside kids activities at the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument in Downtown LA.
A lot of the Cinco de Mayo LA festivities turn have become a weekend bash beginning on the day itself and continuing right through until Sunday. So check press for further details and get your sombrero ready!
