While Americans have been celebrating Cinco de Mayo since the 1860s, in Grand Junction the celebration is in it’s 34th year.
The celebration of Cinco de Mayo by Mexican-American communities in the 1800s was originally to commemorate the cause of freedom during the early days of the American Civil War. Today in the United States it’s a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.
Grand Junction’s 34th Cinco de Mayo Celebration is Saturday (May 3rd) in downtown Grand Junction. The event will feature entertainment throughout the day, art, craft, and food vendors, and a street dance beginning at 6:00.
