Everything about the Cinco de Mayo Fiesta at Gov. Tom McCall Waterfront Park, May 3-5, is authentically Mexican and worth visiting to experience the culture.

Then again, in Mexico they don't really celebrate Cinco de Mayo. It's more of a day for Americans to party, eat great food and partake in all things south of the border, and to celebrate our city's relationship with its Mexican kin through the Portland Guadalajara Sister City Association.
