Cinco de Mayo is not what you think

All the bars in Kona and parties across the whole country celebrated Cinco de Mayo last week. Many had no idea why they were partying. Ask almost anyone at a Cinco de Mayo party what they are celebrating and they will raise up their beer mug and shout, “It’s Mexico’s Independence day, their 4th of July!” Sorry, but Cinco de Mayo is not their Independence day, it’s all about a battle called the Battle of Puebla.
