Cinco de Mayo celebrated at 4th Street Live!

Posted: Updated:

Louisville, Ky. (WDRB News) -- If you didn't get enough of the Derby festivities, Fourth Street Live added a mix of Hispanic culture to all of the fun Sunday. It was Cinco de Mayo at Fourth Street Live.

The event is the first of its kind in Kentucky. Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of the surprising victory of a small group of Mexicans and American volunteers against a large French army in the Battle of Puebla.

This is the 110th celebration of Cinco de Mayo. The local event was started to raise awareness about international cultures.

"The idea is to bring Hispanic culture to Louisville. This is an opportunity for citizens to come and learn," said Helmer Duverge, consultant.

The event featured Flamenco performances, Mexican dancers, salsa rhythms and Latino bands.
