The Ballet Folklorico Yaretzi (Aztec for "you will always be loved") of Norristown, Pennsylvania performed at the Cinco de Mayo celebration in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, on May 1, 2011. Yaretzi      dancers         

Since 2006, the Festival has been sponsored in Kennett Square by Casa Guanajuato, a group promoting Mexican culture. The Cinco de Mayo Festival celebrates the 1862 Battle of Puebla, in which Mexico defeated forces led by Napoleon III of France.  The many mushroom farms in the area have attracted workers from south of the border, so there was a big crowd present, and the program was in Spanish, with only a few brief words translated for us gringos.

There were trinkets and handiwork from various vendors, and a great choice of food. We sampled some great fresh tacos with all kinds of toppings to choose from.  I was not brave enough to try the corn on the cob slathered with mayonnaise and spices, but the papayas on a stick looked good, as did the local ice cream. Stay tuned for more pictures as the week moves closer to Cinco de Mayo (May 5).
