Hispanic Chamber Celebrates Cinco De Mayo

On the eve of Lubbock's Cinco De Mayo celebration the Lubbock Hispanic Chamber of Commerce got things started early Friday. The group hosted a lunch featuring a Mexican buffet and music by Mariachi Amistad. Friday's event also marked the first time the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce united with the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce to celebrate Cinco De Mayo.

Cinco De Mayo celebrates the day in 1862 when Mexico defeated the French Army trying to take control of Mexico City.
