Cinco De Mayo At Longview Elementary

It is the fifth of May, and that was cause enough for some East Texas school kids to celebrate. Fourth and fifth graders at Longview's McClure Elementary performed a special "Cinco de Mayo" program this afternoon.

They wore colorful costumes and danced to traditional Mexican music. Cinco de Mayo commemorates the day a relatively small Mexican army defeated a numerically superior French army at the battle of Puebla in 1862.

More than 300 kids took part in today's celebration.
