Cinco de Mayo
The battle took place on May 5, in which 1000 soldiers of French troops were killed. This fight was just the beginning and the fighting continues for five years. The victory of Puebla is the greatest support and morale for the Mexican which helps in winning the final battle. The name of the city changed to Puebla de Zaragoza, in which you can visit the site of the battle turned into the museum.
On May 5th, you can see the celebration of Cinco de Mayo with parades and victory speeches. There are some enactments of the real battle which took place. This helps in boosting the morale of the people for their soldiers and their country. The immigrants in the US also celebrate this day as their Mexican heritage. You might find some people drinking excessively on this day which is a negative side to these celebrations. But other than that you can enjoy various activities of these celebrations.
