Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

El Carnaval de Puebla en Filadelfia

El Carnaval de Puebla en Filadelfia

El Carnaval de Puebla en Filadelfia transports an authentic Cinco de Mayo celebration to Washington Avenue in Philadelphia. Modeled after the colorful parades and street fairs that mark Mexico’s military victory over invading foreign forces, Philadelphia’s festivities attract thousands of locals and participants from around the U.S. and Mexico. Many of the dancers don ornate costumes and oversized masks that were made in Mexico and represent historic figures and folk dramas.
