5 de Mayo at Dolores Park, San Francisco – Well Done!


Family oriented, alcohol free, truly multicultural and entertaining, that is how the 5 de Mayo celebration at Dolores Park in San Francisco’s Mission District was last Saturday.

The festival celebrates the Battle of Puebla where the Mexican army defeated the French on May 5, 1862.

The event was organized by Mission Neighborhood Centers in partnership with the municipality and the Mexican Consulate, along with dozens of local organizations.
An all-day Saturday affair, at least 2,500 people could be seen at any time sitting on the grass or walking around.
