Here in Texas, there is nary a town or city that doesn’t recognize the Mexican army’s victory over the French in 1862 – be it with a small fiesta at a Mexican restaurant, or something on a larger scale, replete with a parade and flamenco dancers.
But whether it’s half-priced margaritas or marching mariachis, the celebration of the Battle of Puebla triumph will endure in many forms. And some organized festivities may even grow to proportions that take their original organizers by surprise.
A few months ago, our Events + Experiences staff responded to a question about how small-town festivals can grow over time, and what that growth needs to enable long-term success. We thought May 5 – Cinco de Mayo – was an opportune time to share Vice President Jake Clements’answers with you.

And for today: ¡Salud, pesetas y amor y tiempo para gozarlos!
Health, love, money and the time to enjoy them!
