Cinco de Mayo — Spanish for May 5 — celebrates the Mexican army’s defeat of the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. The holiday is just a day off from work in Mexico, but it’s a day of celebrations in the United States, and Dallas is no different.
The sound of Mexican mariachis, folkloric dancers, and the scents of Mexican cuisine surrounded the Citymark building located in Uptown Dallas on Wednesday, May 1st in celebration of Cinco de Mayo.
Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services joined the celebration with mariachis and colorful folkloric dancers from South Grand Prairie High School. Mexican food from tacos, pan dulce, churros, elote and aguas frescas was enjoyed by everyone.
Bradford Commercial Real Estate CEO, Kevin Santaularia and Citymark’s Property Manager, Tammy Salas presented South Grand Prairie High School with a $1,000 donation in support of the mariachi and folkloric program at the school. The donation will support the school’s efforts towards continuing the tradition and Mexican-American dreams of the students.
Citymark tenants had a great time celebrating Cinco de Mayo. They enjoyed music and traditional Mexican dances, and admired the dedication, hard work and talent the students proudly displayed.
