Cinco De Mayo Fiesta on First Friday


GREENVILLE — Main Street Greenville’s Cinco de Mayo Fiesta that highlights Mexican and Mexican-American Culture will take place on Friday, May 5, with shopping promotions starting at 10 a.m. and the Fiesta taking place from 6-9 p.m. The sponsors were each asked to bring something more to the Fiesta than just themselves and they have done just that and more by adding event elements that highlight Mexican themed cuisine. The Merchant House will be offering Mexican Corn, Street Tacos, Churros, and Margaritas under their sidewalk tent. Greenville Elks will be having a Taco Bar and will be hosting the Vintage 3 Band. Put on your sombreros and head downtown on Friday for a Fiesta to patronize, celebrate and honor small businesses!
