Our Mexican Sombrero features a colourful striped straw hat which has a wide brim and a pointed crown. Also attached to the Mexican Sombrero is a blue string which helps hold the hat in place. Cinco de Mayo is a great reason to throw a Mexican Theme Party. Cinco de Mayo is traditionally celebrated to celebrate the victory of Mexico over the French in the battle of Pueble in 1862. Of course like St Patrick's Day everyone is welcome to celebrate this holiday regardless of your ethnic heritage. Most people celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Mexican Decorations, Mexican Music, Mexican food and don forget the margaritas. We have almost everything you need except for the tequila.
