The 5th of May is just a few days away! Celebrate with some local Mexican cuisine!

Cinco De Mayo is an annual celebration in Mexico. It celebrates the defeat of the French against all odds in the 1800's. To celebrate the heroic Mexican people you can dress in colorful colors, wear Mexican hats, sing Mexican songs or eat some Mexican food!

Even though Maine is thousands of miles away from Mexico, we can still celebrate with some of the great Mexican restaurants around Bangor! Here are some of the places to get the Cinco De Mayo experience:

Chili's Grill and Bar- Stillwater Ave.

Can't go wrong with a Mexican food chain! They also often have Cinco De Mayo Specials!

Chipotle Mexican Grill- Stillwater Ave.

Many people don't know that the 5th of May is also National Totally Chipotle Day! Celebrating the awesome peppers that put spice in our lives. Celebrate two holidays in one place, here!
