Cinco de Mayo celebrates the victory over France in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862 – not Mexico’s Independence Day (Sept 16), as many think. The holiday isn’t widely celebrated in Mexico, but has become quite the Americanized holiday. This year, Cinco de Mayo falls on Taco Tuesday, so it’s double the reason to celebrate. The celebrations won’t fill the bars, but if you’re looking for ways to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Columbus at home, we’ve got a list of places where you can get tacos, tequila, tostados, Tecate, and more.
