La Alianza de Hayward, a Latino based organization, hosted their annual Cinco de Mayo celebration in Downtown Hayward near City Hall on Saturday.

The celebration was designed to incorporate the true meaning of the day, which is to celebrate “The Battle of Puebla”, an 1862 victory by the Mexican Army over the French. La Alianza also implemented recognition of past and present contributions to the Hayward area. The celebration included performances by Aztec inspired dancers, folclorico and mariachis.

The event also included the Hayward Farmer’s Market as well as pinatas, face painting and other activities geared towards children.
