I should have posted this over a week ago but have been so busy preparing for the event that I simply have not had the time. As you may or may not know, today is Cinco De Mayo, a celebration of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla. While not a significant holiday for your average American, it is a great excuse to party! This year is not only no exception but the downtown Fort Myers block party will be the biggest one yet! With three stages booked with excellent bands and Negra Modelo pouring at numerous locations this event is worth your time. The event lasts from 4pm-9pm, so everyone has plenty of time to recover for work on Monday morning.
