Cinco De Mayo in Las Vegas

May 2, 2016

If we’re honest, Cinco De Mayo has truly turned into a fiesta for your taste buds, instead of celebrating the victory of the Mexican Troops during the Battle of Puebla over the French. No, it is not Mexican Independence Day; you’ll have to wait until September for that. But until then, go loco this Cinco De Mayo with some fun and fabulous food, festivities, and felicidad that only Las Vegas could provide.

On Thursday, swing by Mi Casa Cantina Grill located within Silverton Casino for their Cinco De Mayo dining specials including tostaditas ceviche, taquitos, sopes, and much more! It wouldn’t be a celebration without buy one get one free Mi Casa Margaritas and draft beers! With over 60 tequilas at your beck and call, there’s honestly no wrong choice, or limit on delicious options. Psst, insider tip! Try the Paloma South, it’s the Desert Companion’s ‘Rita Las Vegas winner!

Bring your celebration all the way into the weekend, and head to the Cinco De May Festival on Saturday May 7th. Enjoy mariachis, traditional dances, a craft and art expo, authentic dishes, games and much more! Bring the niños along for maximum fun!

A giant piñata is the party mascot from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Downtown Container Park. If the piñata isn’t spirited enough for you, Las Vegas Academy’s Mariachi Band is sure to have you on your feet dancing in no time. Also, you can’t miss the Police vs. Firemen taco eating contest! Fresh tacos will on sale in case it inspires you to inhale a few yourself.

Not into livin’ la vida loca? There’s no shame in busting open a piñata in the comfort of your own home. But do you really want to miss out on such mouthwatering options in the name of a delicious victory? We didn’t think so!
