(SPOT.ph) Quick bit of history: the festivities of Cinco de Mayo were born from the unexpected victory of an outnumbered group of Mexican fighters who fought against invading forces from France in May 5, 1862. Everyone loves to root for the underdog, which is probably why, to this day, people commemorate the historic moment by celebrating the victory every 5th of May. Looking to take part in the festivities? Here's where you can join in on the fun:
Cinco de Mayo at Eastwood City

Catch Mars Miranda, Ace Ramos, MC Pao Avila, Arra Pascual, and Katsy Lee on May 4 instead—tacos and other Mexican treats will be available at the Batallia Del Taco that day, too! Don't forget to shop for novelty items at the Mercado El Quinto at Eastwood Central Plaza and Citywalk 2 while you're there.
