The American Cinco de Mayo (the one which is commonly celebrated here in the states) originated in the Mexican-American communities of the west, southwest, and northwest in the 1860's. It has since grown in popularity across the United States with ceremonies and activities celebrating Mexican culture and heritage. Revelers can be found donning sombreros, dancing to mariachi music, and drinking tequila and margaritas as they celebrate with family and friends.
