Happy Cinco de Mayo

Cinco De Mayo Activities Covid-19

In these unprecedented times we are having to get creative in how we observe holidays and traditions. If you’re one who enjoys the Cinco de Mayo holiday we’ve gathered some virtual activities you can use to have a fun fiesta.

Since many of us have more time than usual this year, now’s a perfect opportunity to actually learn about the history of this holiday.

Now would be a perfect time, to virtually visit Mexico City via Google Earth. Or you can also observe Mexican culture through landmarks and museums at Google’s Art and Culture resource. Perhaps you’d like to watch cumbia or any Mexican dances?

Into Cars? Take a walk through a lowrider virtual car show. Would you prefer a DIY project? Involve the kids and make these Fiesta Flowers or Homemade Maracas.

Don’t forget that Cinco de Mayo falls on Taco Tuesday, a perfect time to prepare your celebratory meal or perhaps you want to learn a new favorite with authentic Mexican recipes? What goes better with tacos than guacamole? Alton Brown has the perfect recipe.

If you’re looking to have a delicious Mexican dinner delivered to your home this year, try one of these local favorites.
