With the unfortunate landing of May 5 on a Monday this year (did you notice that March 17 was pretty quiet, too? Also on a Monday), if you want to party for Cinco de Mayo, better do it on Tres o Cuatro. Since 1971, the Anaheim 5 de Mayo Fiesta has brought the local community together at La Palma Park for a weekend of live music, tons of food, dancing, and family-friendly festivities (sorry, no alcohol at this one). Last year, attendees topped the 100k mark, so get there early and secure your spot to watch live performances from Mariachi Nuestra Raises, Los Cadetes se los Primos Tijerina, Quimika Musical and mucho más. And don't miss the talent show competition—one of the Fiesta's most endearingly entertaining acts.
