Longview Hosts Cinco De Mayo

Music, fun and heritage were all on tap at a big Cinco de Mayo celebration in Longview.  Hispanic leaders have organized the event for the past nine years.  For the last four years, the celebration has been held in the Maude Cobb activity center.  The event features traditional music and dance, classic cars and bicycles, and fun for all ages.  Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican victory over the french in the 1800s.  More than 1,000 people visited the celebration today.
