Cinco de Mayo Fiesta in Costa Mesa

Posted on May 3, 2013 | 12:23pm

Cinco de Mayo in Orange County means one thing – it’s time for a fiesta.  With some of OC’s top Mexican food restaurants, Costa Mesa is a great place to enjoy an icy cerveza, sip a cold margarita or knock back a few shots of tequila to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

Cinco de Mayo is celebrated throughout the United States and regionally in Mexico.  Despite popular belief, the holiday is not marked as Mexican independence day, but rather for a victory in battle against the French army in Puebla.  Cinco de Mayo is now synonymous with celebrating Mexican heritage and pride, although the origins of the holiday are an American creation from the 19th century.

Posted on March 15, 2013 | 11:03am

Each year the feast of St. Patrick, or St. Patrick’s Day, is celebrated on March 17.  Although the day celebrates Irish culture and history, the first St. Patrick’s Day celebration did not occur in Ireland, but rather in Boston in 1737.  The color green is was not always associated with St. Patrick’s Day, originally blue was the color of the holiday, but was replaced with green in the 19th century.

Today, St. Patrick’s Day has become synonymous with the color green, images of shamrocks, leprechauns, corned beef and hash, whiskey and of course – beer.  If a visit to the Emerald Island isn’t in your travel plans this weekend, there are many great places and events to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Costa Mesa.
