Congratulations Grand Prairie Cinco de Mayo Festival & Celebration 2017
As the proud State Representative, District 104, for the City of Grand Prairie I want to congratulate Gloria Carrillo and the Cinco de Mayo Planning Committee for a wonderful festival, parade and other activities. For over two decades Grand Prairie has provided a fun and marvelous “family oriented” festival that highlights the rich cultural history of Texas.
The Battle of Puebla, in 1862 commemorates the patriotism of a Young Mexican Army in overcoming the French Army. Such a historic event is now passed on to younger generations of Americans to respect and honor the Latino heritage and history that makes Texas a bi-cultural society today.
