Cinco De Mayo Fiesta & Car Show 

When: Sun., May 5, 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. 2013
Email: shirleymar@msn.com

Cinco de Mayo's significance has been tucked away neatly under the cushions of history's worn sofa. But I offer you a quick knowledge drop: In 1862 a small Mexican resistance defeated an invading French regime twice its size in the town of Puebla (only to force the French upcoast to wallop a waiting Mexican army, which started three years of French rule — but never mind that!). Today, celebrate this historic event at the 30th annual Fiesta and Car Show at the Freedom Financial Services Expo Center (3650 N. Nevada Ave., elcincodemayo.org), with autos, food, music etc. Festivities begin at 9:30 and run until 5. — Miguel Bustamante
