Cinco de Mayo & Derby Day

Happy Cinco de Mayo & Derby Day!

Today’s Cinco de Mayo celebrations take place in the U.S. and Mexico.  In the US it’s a celebration of Mexican heritage, and in Mexico to commemorate freedom and democracy during the American Civil War.

Derby Day is also celebrated here in The Plains, Virginia at Gold Cup.  Many will be drinking mint juleps and enjoying the beautiful weather!
