Celebrated worldwide, Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army's victory in 1862's Battle of Puebla. In the Midwest, revelers look to the Viva Cinco de Mayo Festival to get their kicks. If this year’s vendor lineup is any indication, festival-goers won't be disappointed. Recruited from both inside and outside of Chicago, the live music, food, arts, and crafts bring a south-of-the-border flair throughout four days in Toyota Park. Activities for families abound with children's activities, games, and a carnival with thrills for all ages. See the full music schedule here.
