Metairie’s El Paso To Host 2-Day Cinco De Mayo Festival

METAIRIE, LA – El Paso, an hub for authentic Mexican food and culture located at 601 Veterans Blvd., is about to throw down for its second annual Cinco de Mayo celebration, expanding this year to a two-day festival.

         El Paso’s owners said they are excited to host their grandest Cinco de Mayo celebration to date.

         They said the holiday is often credited as a Mexican Independence Day, but it really celebrates the country’s unlikely victory over the French forces at The Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

         In honor of this classic upset, El Paso Metairie will open its doors on Friday, May 5, at 11:00 a.m. with fun for the whole family including piñatas, T-shirt giveaways and face painting during the two-day affair.

         DJ Doc Roc gets the dance party started on Friday at 3:00 p.m. and the live music continues into the evening with three live sets from The Remixers from 7:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. Promotions and tastings from Patron, Sauza, Corona and Modelo will begin at 4:00 p.m. for patrons 21 and older.

         The festivities continue Saturday, May 6, from 11:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. with a DJ spinning Latin classics starting at 12:00 p.m.; face painting at 4:00 p.m. as well as the continuation of Friday’s tequila and beer tastings and giveaways. At 6:00 p.m. Latin rockers Recuerdo Band will perform at El Paso’s outdoor patio, while The Quarter Notes will perform inside.

         El Paso will be serving up hot, fresh, third-generation authentic Mexican recipes and mixing up some creative variations on their classic, top-shelf margaritas in honor of the occasion.
