Charleston’s third annual Cinco de Mayo Festival will take place on Friday May 2, 2008 at the Visitor's Center Bus Terminal (375 Meeting Street) in downtown Charleston from 7p.m. to 11p.m.
Guests are invited to sample local Mexican foods while relaxing with Margaritas and Mexican beer and enjoying live entertainment. Tickets for the festival are $10 at the door. Food and alcohol will be sold separately at a cash bar. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Trident Literacy Association.
May 5th marks the Mexican army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. In the United States, this day has become a celebration known as “Cinco de Mayo.” It has become a time to commemorate Mexican heritage and culture.
