Historical re-enactment, Mexican style

Despite the hype in the U.S., Cinco de Mayo is one of the less celebrated national holidays in Mexico. Independence Day and the Day of the Revolution are considered more important.

But, to some Mexicans, the victory over the French on the Cinco de Mayo is worth re-enacting. Hundreds participated in the festivities today.
