Maybe it's because we had such a harsh winter and everyone is looking to celebrate, or maybe the lively sounds of Mariachi are really catching on... Whatever the reason - we have noticed a growing number of clients planning Cinco de Mayo parties this year. We have received more requests for Cinco de Mayo entertainment than ever before!

Cinco de Mayo truly is one of our favorite holidays. Throwing a great Cinco de Mayo party is really all about the food, the refreshments and the music (check out last year's Cinco de Mayo post for a few great recipes, entertainment options and more). You can keep most Cinco de Mayo crowds satisfied with margaritas and authentic Mexican food, but what about the kids? Kaboose has recipes that the whole family can enjoy. Just keep in mind that most kids aren't yet ready for much spice - so go easy on the jalapenos. When it comes to the fiesta's entertainment - you need some 'musica autentica'.

If you don't have enough space for a Mariachi band at your party -  consider a Flamenco guitarist or Flamenco duo. Got the Cinco de Mayo music covered already? Consider hiring Flamenco dancers to really get the crowd in the fiesta mood.
