Celebrate Cinco de Mayo online

Monday, May 4, 2020 by Tai Moses

The Downtown Austin Alliance is determined to make the best of things. So this year the alliance will be observing Cinco de Mayo – that’s tomorrow, May 5 – with a festive day of virtual activities, including Frida Friday‘s online mercado, a happy hour and live musical performances. “Cinco with Republic Square,” as the event is dubbed, will “celebrate Austin’s Mexican heritage, Austin’s original Mexican and Tejano community developed around Republic Square, but also promote local Tex-Mex and Mexican food restaurants offering takeout.” Sounds pretty yummy to us. Find a full schedule of events here.
