Don't think that Mexican Americans in the US really celebrate the Cinco de Mayo because of the Battle or Batalla de Puebla victory in Mexico, but rather because they want a day to celebrate their Mexican heritage. Sort of like the Irish Americans celebrating St. Patricks Day, or the Chinese Americans celebrating their Chinese New Year And there's nothing wrong with celebrating your culture or heritage.

I was surprised at the statement for the Cinco de mayo queen contest that the C of c. made in the Headlight '' bilingual will be helpful''. What? Its a queen contest! That could be considered as racist statement. Comments of that nature have no place in a Queen contest in the USA. This is not for job placement. It leads people to think, that if you do not speak Spanish don't bother entering.
on a lighter note
Its very cool that the Amigo's owners are going to be the Grand Marshals of the parade.
