Cinco de Mayo may be tomorrow, but the celebration is happening all weekend in Houston.

League of Latin American Citizens District 8 held their 21st annual Cinco de Mayo Parade today downtown.

It started at 10am at Texas and Hamilton. More than 100 groups participated in the parade.

Proceeds from the parade go to LULAC to help advance the condition of the economy, housing, and health in Houston and the Hispanic communities.

May 5 is the anniversary of the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.
