1st Annual Downtown Cinco De Mayo Celebration WEDNESDAY 5:30pm

ADMISSION IS FREE TIL 9pm. Music, Mexican Food, and YOU!

The Jackson Progressives, Jackson Free Press, Jackson Downtown Neighborhood Association, and several other entities have joined forces for the 1st Annual Downtown Cinco De Mayo Celebration: Celebration of Jackson's Diversity. WEDNESDAY, MAY 5th beginning at 5:30pm at DREAMZ JXN. 426 Capital (One Block From the Historic King Edward Hotel).

This will be an annual event created specifically to reach out to our city's uniqueness. Embracing our ever growing Latino and Hispanic communities and birthing an event that will bring diverse partygoers from all backgrounds together under one roof for good times, good food, and music.

If you havent seen Dreamz, youre missing a new downtown spectacle. There's 3 levels, 20 Big Screens, Pool Tables, a Kitchen, and thousands of square feet of fun. The venue is dedicated to embracing all that is great in downtown and offering Jacksonians a diverse line-up of events.

Already confirmed is Blues Great Jesse Robinson, The El Potrillo Band, and a slew of other performers. DJ Reign will spin the best in dance music and we'll have AUTHENTIC MEXICAN FOOD coming fresh out of our kitchen.

Please pass this email on to friends, family, co-workers, and colleagues. We hope to see you all there at this event we hope will grow to be as huge as the St. Paddy's day Parade.

This is going to be a BLAST! HISTORIC! EPIC! Celebrate a NEW Jackson. Diverse roads are leading to this cinco celebration..


Why, exactly, has this "holiday" gained so much popularity lately (if of course popularity means a reason to throw back vast quantities of Coronas at a Mexican restaurant)? When July 4th rolls around, I don't think you'll find too many people south of the border grilling burgers and pounding Budweiser.
