Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for "fifth of May") is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla,where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla). It originated with Mexican-American communities in the American West as a way to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War, and today the date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day—the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16. (wikipedia)
Celebrating this day is a huge tradition by doing so with amazing foods, drinks and goodies, along with friends and family. Good music is always needed when having such an amazing celebration.

Drink: Always good to start off the party with soft or alcoholic beverages, let people get comfortable and loose so that they should enjoy the party as they wish, make sure you have adult supervision if there are any minors attending this party, or be safe and leave the hard beverages for the end after the kids are done and just the adults are left.
Food: Food menu is something that will need to be decided based on whom your guest will be, it's always good to have some salads, pasta and or vegetables, beans go great, some meat to fill you up would be great as well.
