Where to go for Cinco de Mayo (seen-koh day my-oh) in the Phoenix Metro area?
If you are new to the area you may not know where to go to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
Cinco de Mayo means "5th of May" in Spanish and is a day for fun, food, music and dancing. Cinco de Mayo is a national holiday in Mexico commemorating the Battle of Puebla. On May 5, 1862 a small group of Mexican soldiers defeated a formidable French army that was twice its size. And it is certainly celebrated here in the Valley of the Sun!
There are various celebrations going on this week but if you are looking for a great place to celebrate on the 5th you can join the celebration at Aunt Chilada's Squaw Peak. They are touting it to be the largest celebration in the state!
Nestled in the shadow of the Squaw Peak Mountain, Aunt Chilada’s is truly an historic landmark with a personality all its own. Constructed in the 1890’s from desert stone and railroad ties, the original building served as a supply depot and general store for the mercury miners passing through the Dreamy Draw.
Today, Aunt Chilada’s not only carries on that century old tradition of heartfelt Southwestern hospitality, but also dishes out the finest Mexican food this side of the border.
