The celebration of Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. While it isn’t Mexico’s Independence Day, as many people believe, it is a very important and celebrated holiday that is crucial to the country’s rich history.
“Cinco de Mayo is such a festive day, and something that Bell Tower Shops is proud to help celebrate,” said Shannon Densham, Marketing Director at Bell Tower Shops. “It’s a a pleasure to be able to take part in such an important anniversary for many residents who live in Southwest Florida.”
