Cinco de Mayo is Sunday, and many Northern Virginians are stocking up on tacos, tequila, and Coronas.

Cinco de Mayo is a holiday commemorating the Mexican army's victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862. The holiday has evolved into a celebration of Mexican-American culture, complete with parades and parties.
