"It's the holiday where we Americans celebrate Mexican culture the way we celebrate all cultures in America - by getting hammered on culturally appropriate liquor", Colbert joked.

"On May 5, 1862, General Ignacio Zaragoza's Mexican forces withstood the French assault on the town of Puebla de Los Angeles, despite being outnumbered and underequipped".

In Mexico it's not a widely celebrated holiday except for in Pueblo. "The Battle of Puebla remains an important symbol of Mexican bravery and tenacity".

The Denver Police Department will also be keeping a watch on Cinco de Mayo "cruising" along Federal Boulevard. At the end of the day, nearly 500 French soldiers were killed while Mexican forces lost less than 100 men. The battle wasn't a decisive turning point, and the French ended up taking Mexico City a year later and ruling for about three more years.

Traditionally, folks will cruise up and down the surrounding neighborhoods to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

He said: "We don't want things going backwards". "And for some of them, particularly their MPs, they may view that as a job done". A DUP councillor has questioned if councils were treated differently during the visit of Michel Barnier to Northern Ireland.

Colbert speculated that Mueller is to blame for the president's change - specifically, because someone Trump used to spend every Cinco de Mayo with is now a cooperating witness against him. The celebration spread as Hispanic culture grew in the USA, getting a commercial boost in the 1980s when restaurants and bars began cashing in on the event.

Officials say all dogs and cats will be $5, in celebration of Cinco De Mayo.

Some of the largest celebrations in the US are held in Los Angeles and in towns throughout the west where there are large Mexican-American populations.

Applebee's, with locations throughout Spokane, extended its Dollarita $1 margarita special for the day.
