Cinco de Mayo on May 5th commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over the French in 1862 at the Battle of Puebla. And funny enough, it’s not really celebrated in Mexico the way it is in North America. But, no reason to not celebrate in your community.
Ask residents and staff to dress in thecolours of the Mexican flag or very bright colours.
Decorate your residence with the Mexcan flag, confetti, streamers and balloons.
Encourage your culinary team to make some delicious Mexican food, such as: Carne Asada, Rice & Beans, Tortilla Chips with salsa and guacamole, Fajitas or Tacos
Use a music streaming service to play toe-tapping Mexican music or hire a Mariachi band to perform.
Encourage your residents to salsa dance to the music and really get in the party spirit.
