Furry and Festive: 6 Pets Dressed Up for Cinco De Mayo

These 6 pets are ready to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!These 6 pets are ready to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!This weekend is a time to celebrate - Cinco de Mayo (meaning "fifth of may") is a big celebration in the United States and parts of Mexico. It's an observed holiday to mark the celebration of Mexican heritage and pride and also to serve memorial to the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War.

A day to call special attention to all things amazing about the Mexican culture - their food, music and of course the signature sombrero. Never do you see more people sporting them then during the weekend of Cinco de Mayo and even our pets love to get into the spirit.
