About this event:
“Cinco de Genoa”, will take place on Saturday, May 5 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Genoa is very excited to be bringing the first ever “Cinco de Genoa” celebration to our town this year on May 5th. Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.
Several businesses and organizations along Route 23 will be taking part in this festivity throughout the day. The neighborhood “block” party type celebration, will take place in the parking lots from Tobinson’s Ace Hardware to River’s Mexican Cantina.
Activities throughout the day will include; multiple performances by Ballet Folklórico Rayitos del Sol, wagon rides, face painting, artisan booths, music, inflatables, outdoor exhibits, food and much more. Every hour we will be breaking a Piñata filled with great prizes for kids and adults.
We hope to see all of you on May 5th celebrating Cinco de Genoa with us!
