After a two-year hiatus, Southwest is about to come alive to celebrate Cinco De Mayo this Sunday. The streets will fill up with floats, marching bands, Mariachi bands, vehicles draped in festive cultural items, Mexican flags, and much more. Plus, all the great local shops, bars, and restaurants will be open and celebrating. Many of them will have specials and deals for the celebration.. 

"The Mexican Patriotic Committee of Metropolitan Detroit will host the 57th Annual Cinco de Mayo Parade and Festival beginning at noon on Sunday, May 1. The 2.2–mile parade route will start from Springwells St. and will travel east along W. Vernor Hwy., ending at W. Grand Blvd. Additionally, a cultural and musical festival is planned at Plaza del Sol located near W. Vernor Hwy. and 21st St. from noon to 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 30, and Sunday, May 1." Expect to find " authentic food and groceries like handmade tamales, pan dulce (Mexican sweet bread), fresh tortillas, and marinated cuts of meats to Mexican-made crafts, d├ęcor and novelty items, customers can find everything they need to enjoy an authentic Cinco de Mayo celebration in Southwest Detroit or at home."
