The Cinco De Mayo and the Mexican Independence Day Festivals which are celebrated every year in Lake Street in Minneapolis.

These events have been organized by the businesses and community members between 2nd Avenue South and Portland Ave South on East Lake Street. These are the largest Hispanic gathering events in the entire state. The celebrations feature Mexican products and services, food, beverages, festivities and music including live bands, some coming all the way from Mexico. We have pony rides and face-painting/hairspray for the children, as well as dancing.
