St. Marguerite’s Cinco De Mayo Celebration

The parish hall at St. Marguerite Catholic Church was filled with parishioners and citizens Saturday afternoon who came to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. The celebration featured music, games, cultural entertainment — and lots of authentic and delicious Mexican food, such as tamales, tacos and burritos. During the evening, there was a Cinco de Mayo dance, chile verde contest and silent auction. Always held on May 5, Cinco de Mayo commemorates Mexico’s underdog victory over France in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
