Cinco de Mayo!

Can you feel the excitement? Cinco de Mayo is one of those great holidays that just spells F-U-N. Or F-U-N-I-D-O. Valley Junction in West Des Moines is having it's annual blowout from noon to 10 PM on Saturday May 3rd. OK, that's Tres de Mayo, but it works. You've got your music, your artwork, and food food food. Cinco de Mayo commemorates the victory of the Mexican Army under General Ignacio Zaragoza, over a French Army 3 times its size, on May 5, 1862. So you must eat 3 times the amount of food you would ordinarily. You know which table I'll be at. If you are interested in learning more about the Latin community in general, contact:
