This year you can extend your celebration of all things Mexican beyond the usual date of 5 May when Story Bridge Hotel hosts the Cinco De Mayo Mini Mexican Festival from Saturday 4 May to Monday 6 May 2019.
Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for 5th May) was instituted to celebrate the Mexican Army's victory over French forces in the Battle of Puebla, but in recent years it has become a fiesta in praise of Mexican culture, food and music.
Salivating for tasty tacos? They've got you covered. Love the sounds of a mariachi band? Those trumpets and violins are warming up already. Fancy some margarita magic? Get those lips smacking in anticipation.
From 11am to 10pm each day of the long weekend you'll enjoy Mexican food, drinks at pop-up bars, and a wandering mariachi band.
