On May 5, "everyone is Latino", was the slogan of this year’s National Cinco de Mayo Festival held at the base of the Washington Monument. Cinco de Mayo is a time to commemorate the Battle of Puebla against Frech colonizers, in 1862, an important event in Mexico’s history. The free, family festival, in this 20th annual edition, was organized by the Maru Montero Dance Company and featured dance performances, live music, delicious Latin food and a Mexican market. The festival celebrated not just Mexican Americans but all Latinos in our country.
