Cinco De Mayo celebrated at Fulton Mall in Fresno

FRESNO, Calif.

Cinco De Mayo marks the victory of Mexican forces over the French in the Battle of Puebla more than 160 years ago.

In Downtown Fresno, that celebration includes live music and lots of food. It's also an opportunity for organizations to reach out to the public.

"This is one of the best ways to connect with the community, keep them informed about health and human services, keep them informed about state sponsored programs, keep them informed about auto insurance. It's pretty much every resource the Spanish community needs," said Alex Arellano with the Mexican Consulate's office.

Saturday's event wrapped up at 7 p.m., and then continues Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Parking and admission are free.
