Plant Riverside District will host a special Cinco de Mayo event featuring live music performances—the perfect complement to the authentic Mexican cuisine from the newly opened Savannah Tequila Company.

Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican independence day. It is, however, the day that the (largely outnumbered) Mexican army defended the city of Pueblo de Los Angeles against French invaders in 1862. While Cinco de Mayo is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico, the day marks widespread celebration of Mexican culture and heritage across the United States.

Here in Savannah, Georgia, Cinco de Mayo fun kicks off at at 5:30 p.m. with with the festive sounds of a live mariachi band winding through Montgomery Park at Plant Riverside District. The mariachi band will be followed by LPT, a Jacksonville-based 10-piece Afro-Cuban salsa orchestra also known as the “ambassadors of Salsa and Afro-Cuban music in the Southeast.” LPT will play at Montgomery Park from 7-10 p.m. and is sure to inspire high-energy celebration.

All of the lovely sounds of Cinco de Mayo pair perfectly with the exquisite flavors served by Savannah Tequila Co. The newest addition to the Plant Riverside District’s culinary scene offers some of the city’s best and most authentic Mexican cuisine—not to mention the region’s most extensive selection of premium tequila, mezcal and agave spirits. Guests can dine indoors or outdoors, order to-go, and enjoy specialty Cinco de Mayo cocktails.

…And should you be interested in celebrating Mexican Independence Day, or Día de la Independencia, mark your calendars for September 16, or the anniversary of the revolutionary priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla’s famous “Grito de Dolores” (“Cry of Dolores,” referring to the city of Dolores Hidalgo, Mexico), a call to arms that led to a declaration of war against the Spanish colonial government in 1810.
