Bolton Academy Celebrates Cinco de Mayo

Cinco De Mayo @ Bolton5

By: Taylor R. Jones

On Thursday, May 5, Bolton Academy celebrated its 16th Annual Cinco de Mayo program. Students, teachers and parents observed the festive occasion with traditional Spanish food dishes, music, face painting and more.

The Bolton Academy administration and Parent Teacher Association helped make the event a success, as did Spanish teachers Liliana Quintero and Eduardo Muga, who planned the celebration.

Not only does May 5 designate a time of celebration for the Bolton Academy school community, it also marks a day of remembrance for the Battle of Puebla, which took place on May 5, 1862, near the city of Puebla during the French intervention in Mexico. The battle ended in a victory for the Mexican Army over the occupying French forces.
