Cervezas with Compadres on Cinco
Wednesday, May 10, 2023
The Guest Pool Committee at Spanish Lakes Country Club Village in Fort Pierce organized a great Cinco de Mayo party for some 150 revelers in the clubhouse last Friday.
Mistakenly believed by some to be Mexico's independence day, the celebration of "Cinco" has its origins in the early 1860s, when France attempted to establish an empire in Mexico's territory, but were defeated by an an outnumbered Mexican force at the Battle of Puebla. Of course, in the US, Cinco de Mayo has become more broadly a celebration of Mexican and Mexican-American culture.
Whether you're a current or prospective resident of Spanish Lakes, we thought you might enjoy a glimpse of one community's "Cinco" fiesta. Other Spanish Lakes communities also celebrated in style! 🌵
Does it get more festive than this?
A silent auction featured bikes, golf clubs, photo and art prints, and a number of beautiful handmade wooden bowls (this community has an avid woodworking group), among other items.
Refreshing margaritas and sangria were on tap
Guitar player Dan Golias walked around entertaining the tables
They say Mexican Coke tastes different. It's the real cane sugar!
