Rios says Cinco de Mayo isn’t celebrated in Mexico the way it is in the USA, it is a much more somber occasion. But you can only get it if your order costs $400 or more. This free, two-day fiesta features popular and traditional music, exhibitor booths, dancing, carnival rides, arts and crafts, face painting and plenty of delicious Mexican food. “My mission is to celebrate like there’s no mañana and I expect every guest to do the same!” Arnaldo Richard’s Picos There’s a festival under the big top in the parking lot from 9 a.m.to 2 p.m.

Drink specials will also be running all day with Dos Equis drafts, Corona bottles, and frozen house margaritas for only $3.
On The Border has several specials, including $5 Cinco ‘Ritas and $10 Perfect Patron margaritas.
