Annual Cinco de Mayo Party!

Join us for Cinco de Mayo Friday May 5th 2023

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo at RĂ¡pidos

Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner, and we at Rapidos Mexican Restaurant are thrilled to celebrate this festive occasion with you! This year, we're bringing in the ultimate party band, Whiskey Blend, to keep the festivities going all day long. So, come and join us for a day filled with live music, drink specials, food specials, t-shirt giveaways, free swag, and an outdoor tent to keep the party going!

History of Cinco de Mayo

Before we dive into the festivities, let's take a moment to talk about the history of Cinco de Mayo. Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day (which falls on September 16th). Cinco de Mayo actually commemorates the Battle of Puebla, which took place on May 5th, 1862. The Mexican army, led by General Ignacio Zaragoza, defeated the much larger and better-equipped French army in this battle. While the victory was ultimately short-lived, as the French went on to conquer Mexico, the Battle of Puebla became a symbol of Mexican resistance against foreign domination.

Our live music for Cinco 2023

This year we will have the Whiskey Blend Band. They are a local Kansas City area-based band formed in 2020. Although we're a standard four-piece band (two guitars, drums, and bass) they play a unique combination of Classic Country music and Classic Rock and Roll. Members include Rick McCauley (Vocals/Guitar), Steve Palmer (Vocals/Bass), Dave Trabue(Vocals/Guitar), and Mike Boguske(drums). We are excited to have them! You can find more information on their Facebook page. The live music will start at 6 pm.
