People celebrate Cinco de Mayo

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.—Neighbors in Pasco celebrated Cinco de Mayo Saturday morning with a parade. 

Hundreds lined the streets while they watched decorated cars pass by, listened to music and even had candy thrown at them.

Cinco de Mayo celebrates the battle of Puebla back in 1862 when about 4,500 Mexicans fought French soldiers and won.

The parade started on Lewis Street and 2nd Avenue and traveled to the Pasco City Hall and looped back.  Live music performances followed the parade.
