Cinco Block Party & Pub Crawl Comes to Downtown Wyandotte – The News Herald


You don’t have to travel south of the border to experience Mexican culture and festivities, as the Cinco Block Party & Pub Crawl brings authentic music, dancing and food to downtown Wyandotte. .

Cinco de Mayo, also called the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, is a holiday celebrated in parts of Mexico, and in recent years in most of the United States, that honors a military victory in 1862 over the French forces of Napoleon III.

Cinco de Mayo is traditionally celebrated with street festivals, similar to Wyandotte’s event, which kicks off at 1 p.m. on May 7 in the riverside parking lot at Oak Street and Biddle Avenue.

The event is enhanced by live entertainment from authentic dancers and bands.
