Cinco de Mayo is coming up on Friday, May 5th.  There’s a common misconception that Cinco de Mayo is Mexican Independence Day. But the day actually marks the Mexican army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.  And while the battle itself wasn’t a major win, it did have an impact that likely changed the history of the United States during the Civil War. You can read more about the history of Cinco de Mayo at And check out the Cinco de Mayo deals in Augusta below!

In the years since that fateful day, the celebrations around the victory have evolved. The evolution may be due to the fact that many don’t realize the significance of the day.  In the United States, the day is often observed with Mexican-themed décor, costumes, music, and food.

But you’ll find it’s not just Mexican restaurants that celebrate the day.  There are various places around the CSRA that will have Cinco de Mayo deals on Friday!
