Celebrate Cinco De Mayo at the Lorain Public Library System

In honor of the beloved Mexican celebration, Cinco de Mayo, Lorain Public Library System (LPLS) will host a variety of events in early May. Children can make a craft or enter a coloring contest. Or, enjoy stories, music and piñata treats! Plus, enjoy a performance by the Sacred Praise Choir of Lorain’s Sacred Heart Chapel.

Cinco de Mayo, meaning the fifth of May, commemorates the May 5, 1862 Battle of Puebla, Mexico - a day Mexico successfully defended its sovereignty and proved its army’s resilience. In that famous battle, the outnumbered Mexican Army defeated the more powerful and well-armed veteran French Army.
