Cinco de Mayo Festivities in Grand Prairie

Cinco de Mayo, Spanish for “Fifth of May” is an annual celebration held on May 5 commemorating the victory of the Mexican Army over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862. In the United States, Cinco de Mayo has taken on a significance beyond that in Mexico. More popularly celebrated in the United States than Mexico, the date has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture.

Since 1987 the Cinco de Mayo committee in conjunction with Grand Prairie Independent School District (GPISD), City of Grand Prairie, and other community businesses and organizations have worked together to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

GPISD students K-12 have the opportunity to participate in an art contest, a parade, and an all-day celebration with food, booths, and entertainment. Funds raised support scholarships for graduating GPISD seniors.
