DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — It’s always a celebration when tacos, margaritas, and all you can eat chips are involved.
Wednesday night, many people in the Wiregrass are heading to their favorite Mexican restaurant to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
Last year, La Parilla Mexican Restaurant was closed for the festivities due to the pandemic but this year they are open and serving people their favorite Mexican dishes.
The manager says he welcomes anyone to come to eat and drink at the restaurant as it’s always a good idea to embrace another culture’s history.
“It is not Independence Day,” Manager at La Parilla Mexican Restaurant Brandon Hidalgo said. “A lot of misconception is that Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican Independence Day. It is actually just a battle. It was called The Day of the Battle of Puebla, that is what Cinco de Mayo is and that is why we celebrate.”
La Parilla will be serving customers until 10 p.m. Wednesday.
