Cinco de Mayo History
On May 5, 1862, 4,000 Mexican soldiers held off 8,000 French and allied troops bent on re-establishing their presence in the New World. Recognition of the Mexican victory is widely celebrated in the United States. In Chandler, the celebration is highlighted with the famous Chihuahua Races and the crowning of the King and Queen of Chihuahuas. In addition to
the wildly entertaining Chihuahua Races, there will be plenty of music, food and dancing at this family event.
