ABOVE: Memorial Library set up tables of games, challenges and information Saturday in the north-side parking lot to celebrate Mexican Independence Day, not to be confused with Cinco de Mayo, which celebrates an army battle won by Mexican forces over the French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Mexican Independence Day celebrates the declaration of independence on Sept. 16, 1810. It is the event that marks the beginning of the Mexican War of Independence. Since October 1825, the anniversary of the event is celebrated as Mexican Independence Day.
