Cinco de Mayo

So what is Cinco de Mayo? Easy…translated it’s the 5th of May, which is the day on which it is celebrated, but what it represents is a bit more in depth. It is a Mexican holiday that celebrates the defeat of the French Army in 1862, it celebrates Mexican heritage and pride combining traditional food, music, traditions, and dancing. In the United States it has taken on much the same status as other cultural holidays such as St. Patrick’s Day, Oktoberfest, and the Chinese New Year. 

How do you have your own celebration? Well that to is easy The Costumer carries costumes and accessories to set your own Cinco de Mayo celebration apart. We carry costumes and accessories such as serape (Mexican Ponchos), lace fans, Bandolero bullet belts, and hats of all sorts including sombreros, matador hats, and Spanish mantillas and combs. Don’t forget playtime with our inflatable cactus cooler/ring toss game, just blow up and add ice!
