Two Things Happening Today – Cinco De Mayo and Kentucky Derby Day

There are two important cultural events happening today in America.

First its Cinco De Mayo, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s difficult victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862.

Second it’s The Kentucky Derby horse race in Louisville. This is the 144th annual Running Of The Roses. Justify is the odds on favorite to win today.

So it will be interesting to see the fusion celebrations going on today. Cinco De Derby or Derby De Mayo. Either way there will be a lot of food and drink consumed by those who are enjoying themselves.
