Atlanta will pulse to a Latin beat this weekend for Fiesta Atlanta, a Cinco de Mayo explosion which celebrates the culture, achievements and experiences of people with a Mexican background, who live in the United States.
The event, which officially commemorates the anniversary of an early victory by Mexican forces over French forces in the Battle of Pubela on May 5, 1862, has morphed in the U.S. into an opportunity to promote Mexican services and goods, including food, drinks and music.
Centered at Centennial Olympic Park, the 7th annual Fiesta Atlanta will feature international, national and local recording artists, mariachi music and Mexican folk dancing on two stages;
a morning 5K Run/Walk; youth soccer clinics and sponsor displays with free product samples, arts and crafts and authentic international foods.
