Saturday, May 7, 2011, celebration of Latino culture in downtown Denver. Closing the streets in the city center area, rides, stalls selling trinkets to expensive jewelry, food, face painting, rides for the kids, folk dancing and music. The weather was unusually hot but this only added to the excitement of the day.

(And for the horse lovers in the crowd - the Kentucky Derby later in the day on local television.)

Cinco de Mayo, celebrated by Latinos and non-Latinos across the country, commemorates the victory of a heroic people and their struggle for freedom. On May 5, 1862, in the town of Puebla, the outnumbered Mexican army defeated French forces providing the momentum and national confidence to drive foreign power from their country. Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of freedom and the beauty of Latino culture.

One of our editors photographed the event for your pleasure as follows:
