Cinco de Mayo

You may have heard recently that Cinco de Mayo on Cherokee and the People's Joy Parade are bigger than ever, and the rumors are true. (For more, see our feature story.) This year's celebration of Mexican culture features traditional and contemporary music from more than twenty bands, children's activities, local food, Lucha Libre wrestling and even a mechanical bull. It also, of course, includes the people who make up the Cherokee neighborhood coming together in a free-wheelin' and good-timin' parade that starts at 1:11 p.m. If you want to laugh, eat better than you have in weeks and celebrate life and creativity, Cherokee Street between Minnesota and Texas avenues is where you want to be from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. today. Admission is free.
Sat., May 2, 11 a.m.-9 p.m., 2015
