The city of Topeka helped its employees get in the mood for Cinco de Mayo. It was service with a smile for the Cinco de Mayo employee luncheon today held at Hills Festival Hall in TPAC.

City manager Norton Bonaparte, deputy police chief Gary Herman, city spokesperson Dave Bevins, and zoo director Mike Coker helped serve up the Mexican-style food....and there were plenty of tacos, burritos, and chips to go around.

Students at Holy Family school also got an early start on Cinco de Mayo events with an afternoon dance to some traditional Mexican music. The students also brought in a little German heritage by doing the wedding march. Cinco de Mayo celebrates the anniversary of the battle of Puebla, where Mexicans fought for their freedom in 1862.
