To once again show their love for their history, culture and tradition, the organization “San Mateo Carnavalero” strutted through the streets of South Philly.

This year they celebrated the 10th anniversary of Carnaval de Puebla in Philadelphia, a tradition brought to the city by the Mexican community.

Dozens of families gathered on Sunday to be part of the carnival that commemorates the true meaning of “Cinco de Mayo,” a date that for the vast majority of Americans is synonymous with margaritas and happy hours, while others believe that it is Mexico’s independence.

The commonly mistaken holiday in fact recognizes the victory of the Mexican army over the French in the Battle of Puebla, which took place on May 5, 1862.

During the carnival, the clash is depicted with five elaborate costumes representing five different battalions: Zacapoaxtla, Zapador, Turkish, French (Suavo), and the indigenous Serrano.
